The Northern Great Plains are home to bison, pronghorn, black-footed ferrets, and a diverse array of grassland birds, and millions of people including several Native American tribes. However, the Plains are under threat and are being converted at a dangerous rate – chiefly to produce agricultural commodities, with nature ploughed up and replaced by vast monocultures. People must work with nature to save the Plains and produce food in a sustainable manner. WWF is working with ranchers and rural communities to support grasslands, identifying conservation solutions that help both thrive.
