The Board of Natural Resources has the final say on which conservation strategy is adopted for the marbled murrelet, and they can and must do more to protect vital habitat. This is a critical decision point that will affect the survival of the species in Washington. More conservation of habitat must be included in the plan and the BNR and Commissioner Franz have the ability to make that call.
Now is the time to do what is necessary to recover this imperiled species in our state. The BNR needs to hear from you that you support additional protection for marbled murrelet habitat on state-managed forestlands. Email the board members now!
