Recovery plan for spotted owl

May 17, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The plan, released in Portland, identifies the primary threats as habitat loss due to logging and catastrophic wildfires. Conservation groups called the plan flawed and said it fails to restrict old-growth logging enough to ensure recovery.
