Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis) Painting featured on the cover of the Journal of Raptor Research
by Bryce W. Robinson
I’m excited to once again see a painting of mine on the cover of the Journal of Raptor Research. This painting of a Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis) corresponds to the feature article by Rocky Gutierrez that details the Spotted Owl conservation conflict. Gutierrez outlines this conflict between environmental advocates and the logging industry as a case study for understanding why some conservation issues are so difficult, and ways we can work to manage such conflicts when they are so often too difficult to resolve.
