The Sagebrush Sea, by Siri N.

The sagebrush sea supports an abundance of life, up to 350 species in an area like Thacker Pass. One of these is the Pronghorn Antelope who is indigenous to western North America, and eats sagebrush, as well as grasses and wildflowers.

Other animals and plants who make the sagebrush sea their home include the badger, coyote, northern harrier, golden eagle, ferruginous hawk, sage thrasher, sagebrush lizard, greater sage-grouse, harvester ant, pygmy rabbit, sagebrush, cactus, wildflowers of all kinds, and so many more.

“Considered one of the most imperiled ecosystems in the world and home to mule deer, pronghorn, sage-grouse, pygmy rabbits and more than 350 other species of conservation concern, the sagebrush ecosystem continues to shrink rapidly… ” from New Report Highlights Declining Sagebrush Ecosystem, USGS.
