In Russia, Blakiston’s fish owl habitat is under increasing threat from human development, primarily logging. However, a lack of the most simple baseline ecological data has prevented development of conservation or habitat management plans for this species. In association with the Vladivostok-based NGO Amur-Ussuri Center for Avian Diversity, we have been addressing Blakiston’s fish owl conservation problems in Russia since 2005. We approach fish owl conservation by focusing on three critical areas: research, capacitybuilding, and conservation awareness.
