    Clait E. Braun earned his BS in technical agronomy from Kansas State University (1962), his MS in wildlife management from the University of Montana (1965), and his PhD in wildlife biology from Colorado State University (1969). During his student years he was at times employed by the US Department of Agriculture in Kansas and Montana, and by the Montana Department of Game and Fish. In 1969 Dr. Braun joined the Colorado Division of Wildlife where, during his thirty-year career, he held various positions including program manager, wildlife research leader, and researcher. His studies of sage-grouse in Colorado led to his discovery of the Gunnison sage-grouse in 1977. He was also instrumental in naming the species. In this video, Braun talks about the failures of the Gunnison Basin Gunnison Sage-Grouse Working Group (Colorado) during the period 1995–2002. This video is an excerpt from a longer interview with Braun, the complete transcript of which is contained in WESTERN TURF WARS: THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC LANDS RANCHING (http://westernturfwars.com)

        The Gunnison Sage Grouse ~ surviving for millenia through the harsh winters of the Gunnison Basin ~ dancing at dawn as spring thaw signals their mating season ~ growing up quickly during short mountain summers to continue their cycle of life Once plentiful, these hardy birds, now few in number, are grappling with progress as it has affected their habitat. People, in growing numbers, are learning of this special bird, and are involved in an effort to return the Gunnison sage-grouse population to a healthy size. This is the story of the Gunnison sage-grouse and a dedicated community working to help them survive.

          Gunnison Sage-grouse only inhabit 10 percent of their original range. They once ranged throughout Southwestern Colorado and into parts of Utah and New Mexico. Colorado Parks and Wildlife and other state and federal agencies have joined forces to create a range-wide conservation plan.
