This is an unused sequence from a larger film we did about the conservation of sagebrush habitat and its sage-dependent species. Disturbances such as oil and gas development and residential development have been displacing sage-dependent species at rates simply incompatible with their long-term persistence. Umbrella species like sage grouse have been so extensively pressured in the last century that they occupy only about 50% of their original range and are at about 50% density within that occupied range. If we can conserve sage haitats enough to support healthy grouse populations, we can protect virtually everything else dependent on this unique ecosystem.
