But the scientific committee whose report was delivered to Congress on wednesday suggests setting aside big blocks of old growth Forest known As habitat conservation areas or has. A it represents a change in philosophy a said Jeff d. Blackwood group Leader for planning at Forest service regional Headquarters in Portland. A the sofas were set up to Deal with individual pairs and a habitat area around individual pairs a he said. A so we have a network of individual sofas set up. The conservation areas were set up to Deal with larger areas where you have groupings of pairs up to 20 pairs within a Block of land. A the theory is the larger the areas the More continuous the habitat the More Able we will be to promote the Long term existence of the the report went so far As to warn that 3,000 pairs of owls scattered through the current habitat area network face a bleaker future than half As Many living in the larger conservation areas. The 376 habitat areas scattered through the 13 National forests in Oregon and Washington Range from 1,250 acres in the Klamath province in Southern Oregon to 3,200 acres on the olympic Peninsula in Washington. The number and size of the conservation areas weren to immediately Clear to local Forest planners but the biggest appear to Range up to 50,000 acres and represent a much larger total land area than the habitat areas Blackwood said. A the preliminary examination of the committees recommendations indicates that if they Are adopted the Timber Sale program on the 13 National forests in Oregon and Washington with Northern spotted owls would be reduced by 30 to 40 percent a a he said. That translates to a reduction of More than i billion Board feet of Tim Ber from the current annual Sale Quantity for the Region of 3.8 billion Board feet. Unlike earlier reports condemning the Forest services management of spotted owls this report comes from inside the agencies from a panel up of government scientists and headed by Forest service biologist Jack Thomas. If the committees recommendations Are adopted they will have effects reaching far beyond spotted owls said Bruce n. Apple director of the National wildlife federation Pacific Northwest resource Center in Portland. A a it a ecosystems we re talking about a entire interrelated ecosystems in a natural Forest a said Apple. A a it a not just spotted owls. Its All Plant species fish and wildlife. A the Forest service and . Bureau of land management must learn to manage All species and the ecosystem As a whole. That a what Jack Thomas is telling them. Its basically what the conservation Community has been telling them for years. The spotted owl is nothing but a Canary in a Coal Apple said the committee report was a Chance for scientists working for the Forest service blk and the . Fish and wildlife service to break out of the straightjacket of politics that have constrained them in the past. A it is Light years better biology than anything we have seen out of the agencies in our lifetime a Apple said. A it is the future of Forest Kathy of Halloran spotted owl coordinator for the Forest service said she looked Forward to studying How the new approach might Benefit water Quality other wildlife and the biological diversity of the Forest. A there is a potential for a vast variety of beneficial effects we have not explored yet even though it is focused on the spotted owl a she said.
