Baird’s sparrow  Ammodramus bairdii
ESA status: none


The national grasslands of the American Great Plains have been a priority of WildEarth Guardians conservation work for decades. We work to ensure that the USDA prioritizes protection of the sparrow’s habitat in national grasslands from Montana to New Mexico. The Pawnee National Grassland in Colorado, threatened by a massive expansion in fracking, is a current focal area.
