US sage grouse policy heading back to square one

Recommended Posts

From the article:  "We heard a lot about mineral withdrawals and local collaboration, but all in the name of what?" Donnelly asked. "Are we still committed to conserving sage grouse, or is the intention to mine and drill every acre of the West? If that's the case, we are plunging head-long toward listing the grouse."

Thanks for the heads up. Sage grouse are the iconic game bird of the sagebrush steppe. It is a disheartening to watch their continual decline. Anytime I see one it is a treat.

That's a lot of been and gone things. I don't catch as many fish, shoot as many birds or photograph as much wildlife. The slippery slope has started and seventeen thousand of the worlds scientist agree. If you believe in science, this is worse than the infamous canary singing its dying song.
