PFT Statement on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Revised Spotted Owl Recovery Plan

June 30, 2011
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has released its Revised Recovery Plan for endangered Northern Spotted Owls, which includes recommendations for recovery efforts on private as well as public lands. The plan emphasizes enhanced private landowner incentives and improved state actions to conserve the lands owls and other threatened species need to thrive. This type of cohesive, "All-Lands" approach to managing regions with owl habitat across ownership types follows the recommendations of the Obama Administration's recent "America's Great Outdoors" report, which emphasizes that owners of working forests can be partners in conservation and stewardship efforts that make ecological as well as "economic sense."
