Add comment on:Marbled Murrelets and Their Old-growth Forest Habitat Will Remain Protected
Center for Biological Diversity
A federal district court today maintained conservation protections for marbled murrelets, unique coastal birds in the Pacific Northwest. The court rejected the remaining claims in a timber industry lawsuit that sought to expand logging of the seabird’s old-growth forest nesting habitat. The lawsuit was the timber industry’s fourth attempt in the past decade to eliminate protections for the old-growth forests that marbled murrelets call home, despite undisputed scientific evidence that murrelets are continuing to disappear from the coasts of Washington, Oregon and California.
