"The opportunity is before us to make a different future, and untested approaches are in motion. Is it enough of the right actions in the right places to maintain and recover this icon of the Southern Great Plains? The outcome hinges on our collective will to restore the prairie and the dynamic disturbances that maintain it." from Ecology and Conservation of Lesser Prairie-Chickens (2016)
