NCA Comments on Sage Grouse “Not Warranted” Listing

The Nevada Cattlemen's Association (NCA) supports the United States Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) recent designation of the Greater Sage Grouse (GRSG) as "not warranted" under the endangered species act of 1973. NCA feels this was the correct designation for the benefit of the Greater Sage Grouse, rural communities and the environment. The designation will hopefully result in the continued trend of positive habitat restoration on more than 17 million acres of habitat in Nevada. The recovery rate of species listed as endangered by USFWS under the ESA to date is poor, to say the least, with less than 1% actually recovering.
