The gradual disappearance of sagebrush habitat in the West is having a profound effect on wildlife species such as Brewer's sparrow, sage sparrow, sage thrasher, pygmy rabbit, mule deer, pronghorn, and more. Sage Spirit features each of these species and the threats they face. Photographer and writer Dave Showalter has documented the seasonal changes, animal behaviors, and migrations within the Sagebrush Sea. He is working with conservation leaders, government agencies, Native communities, and private landowners to tell the complete story of the ecosystem and the way humans are using the landscape. Through images and essays, Sage Spirit explains why responsible management of this fragile habitat is so vital. Sponsored by NCW Audubon.
