Researchers Say Wildlife Management Including Prescribed Burns May Help Spotted Owls Recover

Spotted owl populations are in decline all along the West Coast, and as climate change increases the risk of large and destructive wildfires in the region, these iconic animals face the real threat of losing even more of their forest habitat. Rather than attempting to preserve the owl’s remaining habitat exactly as is, wildfire management — through prescribed burning and restoration thinning — could help save the species, said a team that includes University of Idaho’s Leda Kobziar in a Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment study. Read about the study.
