A recently release Presidential Directive to the Department of Interior calls for opening up ALL of the lands designated as critical habitat for the northern spotted owl to logging.
There are less than 2,500 northern spotted owl pairs in the United States and they depend on old growth forests like those slated for logging for their continued survival. These magnificent birds are listed as "threatened" on the Endangered Species List due largely to the loss of habitat. The spotted owl has seen its population decline by forty percent in just four decades.
Please tell President Obama to protect old growth forests vital to the ongoing survival of northern spotted owls.
