Defenders of Wildlife Take Action

Tell Congress to Stop Playing Politics with America’s Wildlife!


Greater Sage-Grouse

These provisions would seriously undermine our nation’s commitment to protecting endangered wildlife and habitat!

Here’s just some of what the provisions would do:  

  • Delay protections for all four species and populations of the iconic sage grouse in the west. The Fish and Wildlife Service has already proposed to list two (the Gunnison and the bi-state sage grouse) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). These species have waited over a decade for protections, and further delays could threaten their survival. 
  • Forbid creation or expansion of any wildlife refuge, even if growing the refuge is vital to the protection of migratory birds or is critical habitat for endangered species.
