Catalyzing North American Grasslands Conservation and Sustainable Use Through Partnerships

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Building on the success of cooperative work on native grasslands in 2011–2012, this project improved native grasslands and ranch livelihoods through the implementation of beneficial management projects on 21 ranches and ejidos on native grasslands. It also disseminated a social marketing package that included training material on the value of grasslands and ranching to society, an online tool with over a hundred innovative practices for grassland management, and a set of infographics on North America’s beef cattle industries, beef cattle trade and grasslands.
