Help save the Spotted Owls

May 14, 2013 

We are writing to tell people about endangered Northern Spotted Owls.

Northern Spotted Owls can be found in Northwestern California, western Oregon and Washington, and southwestern British Columbia. They are a big part of our community, but people keep cutting down trees and killing them. Northern Spotted Owls are important in the food chain. If they are extinct other animals are going to become extinct, too. They are the only owls with black eyes. If people keep destroying their environment, people in the future won’t get to see how special they are.

People can help by planting more trees so that the Northern Spotted Owls have more homes and will be protected from danger. They can also help by adopting an animal for $25 on the World Wildlife Fund website.
