Conservation Plan for Greater Sage-grouse in Utah
By: Utah Department of Natural Resources
Utah’s Conservation Plan for Greater Sage-grouse is designed to protect high-quality habitat, enhance impaired habitat and restore converted habitat to support conservation and restoration of the portion of the greater sage-grouse population within the State. The plan outlines efforts to eliminate threats to the species and negate the need for the listing of the species under the provisions of the federal Endangered Species Act.
