Tell the ODFW Commission to Prevent the Extinction of Marbled Murrelets in Oregon
This reversal demonstrated a blatant disregard for science, state wildlife law and the continued survival of this imperiled seabird. It leaves the murrelet on a path towards extinction in Oregon.
We need your help to urge ODFW to do better to protect this amazing seabird that nests in older forests and forages at sea. Take Action by writing to the ODFW Commission and/or joining us on August 3 in Salem at the ODFW Commission’s next meeting to hold them accountable to their mission to protect our state’s wildlife.
At this upcoming meeting, the ODFW Commission will be reviewing toothless voluntary survival guidelines for the Marbled Murrelet---a virtually meaningless substitute for the mandatory survival guidelines that they would have adopted if they had uplisted the species. This is our opportunity to let the ODFW Commission know that their capitulation to logging interests in June was outrageous, to urge the Commission to follow through on their February decision to uplist the Marbled Murrelet to Endangered, and to adopt mandatory survival guidelines for this species.
