For a little bird often described as a flying potato, the federally listed marbled murrelet is getting a lot of well-deserved attention these days. Why? Mainly because of Cascadia Wildlands et al. v. Kitzhaber et al. our suit against the state of Oregon to halt harm to this soaring spud with our co-litigants Center for Biological Diversity and Audubon Society of Portland with legal power provided by Daniel Kruse of Eugene, Tanya Sanerib and Chris Winter of the Crag Law Center, Nick Cady of Cascadia Wildlands, Scott Jerger of Field Jerger LLP, and Susan Jane Brown of the Western Environmental Law Center.

So read the articles and get to know the issues surrounding this lawsuit and why it is so important to preserve forest interior habitats for the disappearing bird. And do what you can to help us by contributing to the Marbled Murrelet Legal Defense Fund or attending the July 26, 2012 event at Cozmic to support our legal efforts (and bring your flyer).
