World Wildlife Fund Releases the Plowprint Report:2018

World Wildlife Fund (WWF) releases “Plowprint Report” – The purpose of the Plowprint analysis is to identify remaining intact habitat across the Great Plains. This is done by tracking cumulative loss of grassland to cropland over time. WWF is estimating cumulative loss of grasslands because the conversion of intact grasslands represents a significant ecological loss that cannot easily be recovered. WWF is dedicated to eliminating grassland loss in the Northern Great Plains by 2030 to ensure a vibrant future for the human and wildlife communities across the region.
