In addition to collaborating with the FWS through The species is experiencing range-wide population declines federal initiatives, many of the 11 states where greater sagedue to agricultural development, large-scale range improve- grouse habitat occurs have identified important areas needing ments (sagebrush control) , urban and exurban development, special consideration in land-use decisions.

... through the regulatory of habitat on a large scale due to invasive species following authority of state agencies and collaboration with industry, wildfires, agricultural conversion of sagebrush landscapes federal land management agencies, and local sage-grouse to grasslands, and poor grazing practices is exacerbated by working groups. The SGEO provides for coordination of displacement from otherwise suitable habitat and functional greater sage-grouse conservation efforts among all stake habitat loss due to energy and other infrastructure developholders statewide and an evaluation of projects within greater ments.

... In contrast, a CCAA is a predictions for greater sage-grouse and focal species tied to voluntary agreement between the FWS and participating private property sage-steppe ecotypes (black- and white-tailed jackrabbits) ; owners with a permit issued by the agency containing assurances that if the private property owners engage in certain conservation actions for species integrated model testing results in an adaptive management included in the agreement, they will not be required to implement additional framework to inform conservation action within the area of conservation measures beyond those in the CCAA if the species is listed in the GNLCC, and communicated to shareholders.
