The Greater Sage Grouse   

  What would a threatened listing mean for Utah and the West

 

Back in March 2010 The US Fish and Wildlife Service declared that the Greater Sage Grouse was warranted for listing as a threatened species under the endangered species act. The bird was precluded from a formal listing at that time because of higher priority species. A looming final decision has created a mad dash to the finish line, by states, counties, private citizens, and federal land managers.  

 

This week on the County Seat we will look at the good work that is taking place across the state as plans come together and people work to keep the Sage Grouse off of the Endangered Species List.   

 

There is a consensus that the landscape will change but US Fish and Wildlife has assured people that it won't be the end of the world. But what would a listing mean for Utah and would it help the Sage Grouse?

BLM Perspective on current events on public lands
 
The Bureau of Land Management manages nearly 22.9 million acres of public lands in Utah, or about 42 percent of the state. As a result many of the public land decisions being made have a direct impact on Utah's Counties, particularly when you get off the Wasatch Front. Chad Booth sits down with Juan Palma, State Director of the BLM to get the agency's perspective on a number of topics that have been in the headlines these past couple months.
