Working With Nature
As biodiversity on the land is increased by feeding soil life, the soil is able to feed a variety of plants. Those plants feed more wildlife and provide them shelter. On the Birdwell-Clark Ranch near Henrietta, Texas, they increased their bobwhite quail populations by 452% due to improved wildlife habitat as a result of their holistic planned grazing. Wildlife needs adequate food, shelter and water for survival. If the rancher plans the grazing to take into account the wildlife’s needs (such as making sure to avoid nesting areas when birds are nesting), the wildlife counts often improve.
