PRO­TECT THE SOWAQUA SPOT­TED OWL

Alberta Oil - - OIL SANDS REPORT -

The Trans Moun­tain pipe­line runs through ap­prox­i­mately 11 kilo­me­ters of a ded­i­cated spot­ted owl wildlife habi­tat area, and its ex­pan­sion could re­sult in the clear­ing of pre­vi­ously undisturbed for­est. The com­pany is ob­li­gated to con­sult with lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, in­clud­ing abo­rig­i­nal groups, and de­velop a plan to min­i­mize and off­set any im­pacts on this pro­tected area. Trans Moun­tain will also mon­i­tor its mit­i­ga­tion ef­forts post-con­struc­tion, and ex­am­ine their im­pacts on the spot­ted owl pop­u­la­tion.
