Can’t we all just get along? If you ask owls and loggers in Russia’s Far East, the answer is a definite ‘yes.’
As a matter of fact, for the endangered Blakiston’s fish owl, loggers are essential for survival in Russia’s Primorye.
A new study shows that the greatest proportion of suitable fish owl habitat in a 7,804 square mile range was located in lands leased to logging companies (43 percent). Only 19 percent of such lands (enough for only eight owl pairs) were protected in nature reserves.
