Habitat and Wildlife
Protecting threatened and endangered species was one of the highest priorities of this planning effort. The BLM worked closely with the Fish and Wildlife Service to develop strategies to protect wildlife, including the northern spotted owl. As a result, the BLM's habitat management strategy will reduce the risk to the northern spotted owl in the next 50 years in the western Cascades and Klamath Basin.
In the Story Map below, you can see how the BLM is protecting large blocks of older forests to provide habitat to threatened and endangered species, the locations of different kinds of wildlife on the landscape, and the importance of managing for climate change.
You can view all of the Resource Management Plan Story Maps on the ESRI website.
