The black-tailed prairie dog, a hallmark of the American West, is a keystone species that many plants and animals depend on. We grow fond of these darling creatures as we watch them scamper here and there along trails and roadways in our nation’s grasslands. We need prairie dogs. They increase vegetation health by regularly cropping grasses and herbs. Short plants provide a better source of protein to the grazers that feed on them, such as bison, antelope, deer and elk. Prairie dog burrows provide shelter to mountain plovers, burrowing owls and black-footed ferrets; species listed as threatened or endangered. In this painting, I focus on these rare species and prairie dogs to illustrate that every life form is connected, a universal theme throughout my work.
