    Description

    An unprecedented conservation effort is underway across 11 western states to address risks to sagebrush ecosystems and the species that depend on them. The sagebrush biome - the largest biome in the Lower 48 states - provides a large diversity of habitats and supports more than 350 species of conservation concern. Since Euro-American settlement in the mid-1800s, this “sagebrush sea” has been reduced in area by nearly half and many of the remaining sagebrush ecosystems have been significantly altered.
