Conservation Projects

Conserve the Greater Sage Grouse & Its Habitat

Sage GrouseUtah is home to the ancestral greater sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus). The destruction of their habitat due to development projects and overgrazing has caused reduction in the populations of greater sage grouse.

By making a donation here you will be supporting the Wild Utah Project and Utah State University to study alternative grazing practices that we hope will benefit Greater Sage Grouse and ranchers.


Help Protect the Threatened Snowy Plover

Snowy PloverNorth American numbers of the snowy plover have been declining for decades. In order to prevent further decline we need to understand more about the biology and ecology of this bird.

By donating you will be helping to support research and conservation at four snowy plover wintering sites in Mexico, as well as the breeding sites right here at our own Great Salt Lake. The goal of this project is to provide a better understanding of the movements of the snowy plover in order to preserve it in all of the places it calls home.


Save the Endangered Great Green Macaw

Green MacawThis spectacular parrot is identified as an endangered species “most in need of protection,” having declined alarmingly due to poaching and deforestation.

By donating you will be helping to support conservation projects in Costa Rica and Ecuador through the World Parrot Trust. These projects are responsible for raising captive bred macaws for wild release; monitoring and scientific research of released and wild birds; creation of education programs in communities surrounding release sites; and preservation of habitat.
