Webinar - Implementing the Mexican Spotted Owl Revised Recovery Plan: Conducting Fire Management in Owl Habitat


Presenters: William Block (USFS RMRS) and Shaula Hedwall (USFWS)

The Mexican Spotted Owl Recovery Plan, First Revision, was released on December 17, 2012. The Recovery Team used the best available science to delineate actions we think are required to recover and protect the owl. This Recovery Plan presents realistic and attainable goals for recovering the owl, involving forest habitat management and vigilant monitoring. The goals are flexible in that they allow local land managers to make site-specific decisions. To accomplish the recovery of the Mexican spotted owl, the recovery strategy has five key elements designed to conserve the subspecies throughout its range: 1) protect existing populations; 2) manage for habitat into the future; 3) manage threats; 4) monitor populations and habitats; and, 5) build partnerships to facilitate recovery. The webinar presentation will briefly summarize all of the components of the plan, but focus on recovery recommendations dealing with fire and fire management.
