How do sage-grouse core areas fit into the WLCI?

The Wyoming Governor’s Office designated sage-grouse core areas as locations where development of any type can only be done when no decline to the species can be demonstrated. The WLCI supports conservation of sage-grouse and considers its overall conservation to be beneficial to several other species that rely on sagebrush habitat. Therefore, sage-grouse core areas fit in well with WLCI priority conservation areas targeting sagebrush habitat and associated wildlife. The WLCI will adhere to the sage-grouse core areas, but the State remains the lead in implementing and applying the directives.
