Strix Occidentalis Caurina
Hello, our names are Sammy and Sophie. We are both Spotted Owls. Our latin name is Strix Occidentalis Caurina. We became endangered in the year 2000. In British Columbia our population is declining. Between the years 1992 and 2001 our population delined by 7.2%. In BC in 2001 there were less than 50 active spotted owl sites and in 2002 that number had dropped to only 30. It is estimated that there were more than 500 sites before european settlement. Sammy and Sophie Spotted Owls are found in the Northern parts of the Western United States and in the Southern Part of Western British Columbia. More accuratly, the spotted owl is present in the Coastal forest from Southwestern BC to California and the Rocky Mountains from Colorado to Central Mexico. In BC the Spotted Owl lives in Anderson Lake and east to the Mowhawkum Creek and west to the Capilano River.
