Our Work on Grasslands Conservation

Disturbances such as agricultural and residential expansion have negatively impacted the central grasslands of North America, affecting water and food security and leading to the loss of biodiversity. We have brought together conservationists and ranchers in the 3 countries to promote beneficial management practices on ranch land. Since 2011, more than 360,000 acres (146,000 ha) of ranch land have been placed under sustainable management through initiatives we have funded.
