- The overall goal of the Greater Sage-grouse Comprehensive Conservation
Strategy (Strategy) is to maintain and enhance populations and distribution of sagegrouse
by protecting and improving sagebrush habitats and ecosystems that sustain these
populations. This Strategy outlines the critical need to develop the associations among
local, state, provincial, tribal, and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and
individual citizens to design and implement cooperative actions to support robust
populations of sage-grouse and the landscapes and habitats upon which they depend. The
justification for this effort is widespread concern for declining populations and reduced
distribution of sage-grouse.
