  World Habitat Day 


Despite 40 years of protection efforts and billions of dollars, America's rarest animals and their habitats continue to decline. Existing approaches are not capable of protecting habitat quickly enough and at a large enough scale to restore healthy wildlife populations, in large part because a challenge between wildlife and development typically ends in costly and time-consuming court battles. But EDF has come up with a solution that allows people and wildlife to thrive together.   



Lesser Prairie Chicken

The lesser prairie-chicken is a ground-dwelling grouse, known for its elaborate mating dances, and found only in the United States. Once abundant throughout the southern Great Plains, the bird is now limited to select portions of New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. Its habitat overlaps with farming and ranching operations as well as oil, gas and wind energy development.

EDF is among the leaders in an effort to save this species. By participating in the Lesser Prairie-Chicken Habitat Exchange, farmers, ranchers, and other landowners can earn income by creating, maintaining, and improving habitat vital to the survival of the lesser prairie chicken.

There were once an estimated 1 million Attwater's prairie chickens living in the coastal prairie of Texas and Louisiana. But rapid loss of prairie habitat in the early 1900s took a devastating toll. Today, the only living Attwater's prairie chickens are born in zoos.  :(

Prairie chickens need millions of acres of prairie habitat in order to survive extended droughts and a multitude of other threats—far more than can ever be preserved through purchase and the establishment of federal or state refuges and preserves.
