World Wildlife Fund Northern Great Plains

Partnering with the Ranching Community

More than 75 percent of the remaining intact grasslands of the Northern Great Plains are privately owned and mostly managed as ranchlands for livestock production. Ranching leaves grasslands intact, protects vital habitat for birds and other grassland species, moderates run-off, and sequesters carbon in the soil. Since 2011, WWF’s Sustainable Ranching Initiative has helped establish a productive dialogue between conservation interests and the ranching community to ensure that ranching stays viable and sustainable.
