Save Oregon’s Marbled Murrelet

The marbled murrelet is headed for trouble, and we’re running out of time to save it.

This small seabird nests in Oregon’s old growth forests and is declining in part due to habitat destruction.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission originally decided to uplist the status of the bird from "Threatened" to "Endangered" in February under the state’s endangered species law. But under pressure from special interest groups, the Commission reversed its decision in June and denied the bird the legal protections it needs to survive.

Tell Governor Brown to do the right thing for Oregon wildlife.
