The Reno Gazette Journal has an interesting article up about Nevada’s plans to try to save the Sage Grouse.  Of course, they are not trying to save the grouse because of concern for the environment or biological diversity, but because if the grouse gets listed on the Endangered Species list it will be much more difficult to develop land that is Sage Grouse habitat.
