Jay Butler, owner of Pronghorn Ranch in Douglas, Wyoming, cares deeply about biodiversity on his land. As a participant of Audubon's Conservation Ranching program, he actively stewards habitat for birds. After a wildfire wiped out a vast swath of sagebrush on his ranch, he's been working hard to bring it back.

Working lands represent one of the best hopes for conservation. Audubon's Conservation Ranching Program honors and listens to the ranchers who are stewards of vast open spaces and provides them with a value added, market based strategy that benefits landowners and birds alike.
