Declining Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) populations and habitat trends warranted concern for their long-term viability by state and provincial wildlife management, land management agencies, and conservationists by the mid-1990s. Management authorities reacted to these trends by enhancing conservation efforts, adjusting hunting seasons, redirecting funding, and entering into cooperative agreements for coordinated management. Additionally, an assessment of sage-grouse population trends and habitat was prepared, as was a range-wide conservation strategy. Concern about sage-grouse and sagebrush population declines also caused citizens, non-governmental organizations, and industry to respond significantly by beginning or cooperating in conservation activities that benefit sage-grouse and sagebrush habitats. This chapter summarizes existing petitions filed to list Greater Sage-Grouse under the United States Endangered Species Act. The purpose is to document laws, regulations, policies, executive orders, judgments, findings, conservation planning and efforts, organizations, industry, and governments that frame the conservation status of greater sage-grouse.
