No animal has inspired as much interest and controversy in the Pacific
Northwest as the Spotted Owl.
The result of numerous court cases in which environmental and forestry
groups fought over how to
manage this owl and the forests in which it lives has dramatically
changed the philosophy of forest
management in the United States. Thanks to this friendly, curious
bird and the tireless work of
environmentalists, several thousand acres of Coast Range old growth
forest still remain.
