The Mystery of the Spotted Owl

Hi Paov,

There is one wild spotted owl and two captive-bred spotted owls left in the old-growth forests in BC. The historical population is estimated at 500 pairs. Only 30 years ago, shortly after I started working at the Wilderness Committee, 100 pairs still remained. And now just three owls are remaining in the wild.

Let that sink in for a minute.

Take action for the spotted owl So what immediate, urgent actions are the governments taking to stop the extinction of the owl in Canada and reverse this trend? That’s the mystery.
Our latest paper, The Mystery of the Spotted Owl, is the whodunit story that will make all of this a lot clearer. Take a moment today to write Premier David Eby and demand the government stop all logging in spotted owl critical habitat immediately and work in partnership with First Nations to defer and permanently protect all of the spotted owl’s range as fast as possible. If you can, ask your family and friends to do the same. More than 1,000 of you wrote submissions criticizing the federal government about the weak recovery strategy draft they released for not going far enough to identify habitat for protection that would actually allow the species to recover.

The federal environment minister committed to recommending an emergency order to cabinet to protect its habitat from logging due to the imminent threat to its survival — but hasn’t done anything yet. More than 1,100 of you so far have written the federal cabinet telling them to approve this order.

The BC government, unfortunately, hasn’t done their part. The provincial government has only temporarily deferred two small watersheds from logging. At a time when strong leadership and fast, decisive action is required to prevent a domino chain of extinctions — starting with the owl and ending with who knows how many others — the government isn’t taking this seriously. Write my letter! While things may seem impossible for the spotted owl, on the contrary I believe we stand on the doorstep of a crucial moment in the history of the spotted owl. Your support today could make the difference.
