"Selling the ranch is the prudent thing for an 89-year-old man to do. It's time to get my life and my affairs in order," Pickens said in a statement.
"There are many reasons why the time is right to sell the ranch now, not the least of them ensuring that what I truly believe is one of the most magnificent properties in the world winds up with an individual or entity that shares my conservation beliefs."
