The 2014 State of the Birds report reveals 44 Oregon species are experiencing population declines due to habitat loss and other factors, while a National Audubon Society study predicts that by 2080 climate change will threaten 189 species regularly found in Oregon, including the rufous hummingbird and greater sage grouse.

Logging of parcels liquidated from Elliott State Forest will harm marbled murrelets, other wildlife, water and people
Conservation groups filed a notice of intent to sue Seneca Jones and Scott Timber today to prevent the imminent clearcutting of three large parcels of Elliott State Forest lands that were recently sold to these companies. The notice presents evidence that the clearcut logging conducted by both companies will harm federally protected marbled murrelets, seabirds that come inland to nest and breed in mature and old-growth forests. The Endangered Species Act prohibits actions that injure or kill threatened species, including destruction of occupied habitat.
