Protect Ocelots and Mexican Spotted Owls

Action: Wildlife Conservation

March 25, 2013   Action Alert ID# 82

 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is in the process of reviewing the status of Mexican spotted owls and ocelots in the Southwest, and their recovery hangs in the balance.

Mexican spotted owls were saved from extinction by a 1993 endangered listing resulting from a Center for Biological Diversity petition. The owl’s recovery plan called for monitoring, research and habitat restoration. Unfortunately those actions have largely not been taken, and owls have not been able to fully recover.

In addition, the dangerously limited populations of ocelots in both Arizona and Texas are divided by the border wall with Mexico. Yet, the agency believes current Mexican population size may warrant removal of protections – meaning that even significantly declined ocelot numbers in Mexico would be considered "recovered" under the proposed plan. We need your help to tell the agency to continue protecting ocelots under the Endangered Species Act.

Fish and Wildlife needs to focus on proper planning to take bold steps toward ocelot protections and address unfulfilled responsibilities to monitor Mexican spotted owls and restore their habitat.

Please tell Fish and Wildlife to protect these two iconic Southwest species.
