VIEW FULL AGENDA

Last month, under pressure from the logging industry, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission made an unprecedented decision to reverse an earlier decision to uplist the Marbled Murrelet from threatened to endangered. This reversal demonstrated a blatant disregard for science, state wildlife law and the continued survival of this imperiled seabird. It leaves the murrelet on a path towards extinction in Oregon.

Join us August 3 in Salem at the ODFW Commission’s next meeting to hold them accountable to their mission to protect our state’s wildlife. At this meeting, the ODFW Commission will be reviewing toothless voluntary survival guidelines for the Marbled Murrelet---a virtually meaningless substitute for the mandatory survival guidelines that they would have adopted if they had uplisted the species.

This is our opportunity to let the ODFW Commission know that their capitulation to logging interests in June was outrageous, to urge the Commission to follow through on their February decision to uplist the Marbled Murrelet to Endangered and to adopt mandatory survival guidelines for this species.

If you plan to attend the Commission meeting, please RSVP by contacting Steph Taylor staylor@audubonportland.org The meeting will be held at ODFW Headquarters at 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. SE, Salem, OR 97302.
