About 83% of the area is protected by The Wildlife Habitat Protection Act, which, along with parts of the provincial pasture, affords protection to the grasslands through range management. In June 2004, the Government of Saskatchewan accepted in principle, all the recommendations of the Great Sand Hills Land Use Strategy Review Committee. One of the most significant actions of the government at that time was to protect in law over 366 square kilometers, (an increase of 271 km2 or 285% beyond the original 95 square kilometers) of the Great Sand Hills as an ecological reserve on June 24, 2004.

As a result of the 2004 review, the Provincial government commissioned an independent Regional Environmental study that was Completed in May of 2007.
