As feds move to lease sage grouse range, Wyoming’s new governor backs “some mitigation” when bird’s niche is developed.
The birds don’t need help with their love lives – that’s what the dance is for.
Mitigation for habitat destruction could be one result of new law authorizing private bird farms to raise grouse, Casper industrialist says.
Wyoming’s “core area” designation will not include critical winter range inside a proposed gas field, but a team will recommend special winter stipulations there.
Wyoming will let the BLM, not the state, govern development of a gas field that’s home to 2,000 wintering grouse, a state adviser said last week.
