Save burrowing owls from eviction

Action: Wildlife Conservation

November 17, 2016   Action Alert ID# 450

 

As their name implies, burrowing owls need underground cover for survival. And yet, at the request of developers, California wildlife officials routinely allow owls to be evicted from their burrows. They call this practice "passive relocation," but there's nothing passive or humane about it.

Biologists install one-way doors on burrows that allow the owls to exit but not return -- effectively evicting them without notice. State wildlife officials admit that owls are likely harmed, and even killed, as a result.

Burrowing owls have already been fully eliminated from a quarter of their former range in California due to habitat loss, eradication of burrowing rodents, and the practice of booting owls from construction sites.

Tell the state's wildlife officials to stop the inhumane eviction of burrowing owls and work toward ensuring their safe future.
