Record Enrollment for LPC Conservation
Private landowners have stepped up to the plate and enrolled an unprecedented amount of acres in conservation programs to conserve and restore Lesser Prairie Chicken habitat. Conservation at this landscape scale was only possible through the collaboration of state agencies, the federal government, nonprofit organizations, and private landowners at the epicenter.
At RFF, our hats are off to private landowners who have enrolled in programs, such as the Range-wide Plan, Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances, federal programs, and state conservation initiatives. Combined, the acres enrolled in these conservation programs represent approximately half of the species' current range.
