About this title


· Reveals an little-known yet iconic Western region that supports virtually all western wildlife species

· A conservation priority area for Audubon, World Wildlife Fund, and the National Wildlife Federation, among others
Located on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains and stretching from Greater Yellowstone to Telluride, Colorado, the region known as the Sagebrush Sea is a unique wildlife habitat with an abundance of natural resources. For this reason it is treasured by conservationists, private land owners, and energy developers alike.
The loss of this habitat would be catastrophic for important species like the Greater and Gunnison’s Sage-grouse. Greater Sage-grouse were once found across thirteen western states, but due to energy development and conversion of land for agriculture, they now inhabit only half of their historic range.
In addition, the gradual disappearance of sagebrush habitat in the West is having a profound effect on other 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.
