Though the burrowing owl is classified as threatened in the US, it is severely endangered in San Diego, CA. There are just 90 birds left, down from over 150,000 in 1921. Construction projects are taking over owls' habitats, forcing them to migrate, or face certain death.
The environment is bring threatened as well. Every ecosystem is maintained by complex and delicate relationships, and the loss of just one species can have huge consequences for an entire area. This is especially true for the burrowing owl, a key indicator species. Its numbers reflect the state of the entire ecosystem. That's why Save The Owls Project (STOP) is petitioning for stricter enforcement of construction laws: to protect our environment, our future, and our natural flora and fauna.
If you believe that stronger law enforcements for the protection of our at-risk species is the best thing we can do to protect their future, sign our pledge. We'll let you know how you, too can help protect America's natural beauty.
