BLM evaluating greater sage grouse conservation plans /sagebrush habitat

On November 19, 2021 the BLM announced that it is evaluating potential updates to its collaboratively developed 2015 conservation management plans in 10 western states for greater sage grouse based on newer science. The 2015 conservation plans really were not implemented because the next administration decided to amend and weaken the plans in 2019. Greater sage grouse and the sagebrush steppe need greater conservation safeguards. BLM is inviting public comment (scoping stage) on “issues for analysis and relevant data.” CWF will submit comment re Colorado sagebrush habitat stressors and greater sage grouse.  Here is the link to BLM’s release:
