Background

In March 2010, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) determined that listing the Greater Sage-Grouse as a threatened or endangered species was "warranted, but precluded" and determined that current and potential threats to Greater Sage-Grouse habitat and inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms pose "a significant threat to the Greater Sage-Grouse now and in the foreseeable future". 

The North Dakota Greater Sage-Grouse Draft EIS is one of 15 separate EISs that are being conducted as part of the BLM's west-wide National Greater Sage-Grouse Planning Effort, to provide additional measures into RMPs to maintain and increase Greater Sage-Grouse habitat on public lands.
