Russia’s Giant Owls

Russia’s Giant Owls Photo

Rare Blakiston’s fish owls – and their favorite prey, salmon – rely on giant old-growth trees in Russia’s Far East. This massive animal has a wingspan of up to 6 feet and requires equally massive trees to survive. Conservation of the owl’s habitat will not only protect their population, but many other species that call these northern forests home. Learn more about this animal and its environment in this news story.
