Comments to consider from the Idaho Conservation League

  • The last amended resource management plans did not go far enough, but they were a step in the right direction. Weakening these plans further is bad for sage-grouse and Idahoans.
  • Sage-grouse priority and core areas need to be expanded or at least maintained and fully protected from energy development and mining activities
  • The BLM should retain a “net conservation gain standard” for mitigating human activities that are harmful to sage-grouse.
  • Buffers surrounding sage-grouse breeding grounds and nests and protecting them from disruptive development should be increased, not decreased.
