    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) just began a planning effort encompassing just about every BLM land use plan in 10 Western states. The subject of this gargantuan, multi-million dollar planning effort is the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) In April 2010, the United State Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) found the greater sage-grouse warrants protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), but listing the species was precluded by the need to address other high priority species first.
