White Paper: PREDATOR CONTROL AS A CONSERVATION MEASURE FOR SAGE-GROUSE


Predator control is a technique that has been applied in research settings and on a limited basis at local scales as a
tool to benefit sage-grouse populations. The cause of mortality for most sage-grouse is predation (Bergerud 1988),
whether as an egg, chick, juvenile or adult. What is relevant to the long-term sustainability of sage-grouse
populations is not how birds die, but rather the rate at which mortality including predation occurs and whether
recruitment exceeds mortality.
