Northern Spotted Owl Implementation Team Agendas and Minutes

The old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest are some of North America’s most amazing natural assets. The legacy of these forests was called to the forefront more than 20 years ago when the northern spotted owl was listed under the Endangered Species Act as a threatened species in Washington, Oregon, and California.
A number of conservation partnerships are in place with public and private partners who contribute to spotted owl recovery. The two main threats to the spotted owl's continued survival are habitat loss and competition from the barred owl, a species native to eastern North America. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, along with our recovery partners, is working to embed spotted owl recovery within a broader vision for a healthy, resilient Northwest forest landscape—building on the original tenets of the Northwest Forest Plan. Our efforts will help restore vitality to our great Northwest forests—and help safeguard all their lasting values.
