Northern Spotted Owl


Opinion reads: It all started in 1986 when an environmentalist group got the Northern Spotted Owl listed on the endangered species list. They then went to work trying to shut down logging in Oregon because they claimed this would destroy the only possible habitat of this owl, thus hastening its demise. The logging industry fought hard but in the end, President Clinton’s Northwest Forest Plan shut down most logging in the state, ending tens of thousands of jobs and shutting down entire towns.
