Stop Pacific Deforestation Habitat

Action: Stop Deforestation

November 11, 2012   Action Alert ID# 21

 

Your voice is urgently needed to save the marbled murrelet and its ancient forest home.

The Obama administration has quietly entered into a legal agreement with the timber industry to open the murrelets' habitat to clearcut logging, allowing the species to spiral toward extinction.

The marbled murrelet is a small, black-and-white seabird that nests in moss on the branches of old-growth trees along the Pacific Northwest coast. In 1996 nearly 4 million acres of forest were protected as nesting habitat for the murrelet.

But this fall the Fish and Wildlife Service issued a "consent decree" with the timber industry that will strip away murrelets' "critical habitat" and allow the destruction of the only place these shy seabirds can nest.
