RMRS scientists have been involved in Mexican Spotted Owl recovery efforts since before the species was listed as Threatened in 1993. Today, our scientists are developing new knowledge of this owl, synthesizing existing information, and working with land managers to integrate habitat requirements for the owl and its important prey species into management plans.

Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) scientists have been at the forefront of efforts to understand the ecology of the threatened Mexican spotted owls (Strix occidentalis lucida) for more than 25 years. These scientists and their cooperators have produced most of the existing scientific information on this species. Today, RMRS scientists continue to be actively involved in developing new knowledge on this owl, synthesizing existing information, and working with managers to integrate habitat requirements for the owl and its important prey species into land management plans.
