Governor Rick Perry and his colleagues in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma say public-private partnerships involving landowners and developers are the best way to protect the habitat of the lesser prairie chicken.  

The governors have signed a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service asking the agency to not add the bird to the threatened species list.
 
They said that adding the prairie chicken could slow development of oil, gas and wind projects in the region.
