Marbled Murrelet and Northern Spotted Owl Status Challenged

As reported by YourPlanetEarth on 03/01/2002, a petition has been filed with Secretary of the Interior Gail Norton to have the endangered species status of the Marbled Murrelet and the Northern Spotted Owl reviewed. If that review doesn’t take place, the American Forest Resource Council, a mouthpiece for the timber industry, has warned that they will file a suit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. More details of this issue are available in articles published in the Oregonian and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
