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.

Keeping All the Pieces – A Documentary Film

Keeping All the Pieces is an outreach campaign and a 15-minute documentary film that promotes conversations about the public lands of western North Dakota known as the Badlands. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the impacts of oil and gas development while inspiring further self-education and advocacy. The future of the Badlands should be a decision made by the public, not by the oil industry. What is the best way for North Dakota to wisely develop our oil and gas resources while maintaining the environmental health of our deeply valued natural and agricultural landscapes? This is the question Keeping All the Pieces seeks to answer by forming a partnership between residents of North Dakota and advocates of conservation and wildlife.
