 Scott River on a winter day by Scott Harding Photo
dingPhoto.jpg> The private timber company Fruit Growers Supply owns
thousands of acres of mid-Klamath forests, including portions of Beaver
Creek, Horse Creek, and the Scott River. The company is trying to get a
Habitat Conservation Plan  approved for its logging plans, and has also
applied for 50-yr Incidental Take Permits to kill species otherwise
protected by the Endangered Species Act.

zLFsG97oRMq>  action now.

At risk are threatened coho salmon, already struggling to hang on in these
watersheds, as well as steelhead and Klamath and Trinity Chinook - both
imperiled species the company would like to kill with impunity should they
make the endangered species list in the future.

Fruitgrowers' proposed plans do not adequately protect fish habitat, and
their killing of endangered fish through logging and road building should
not be exempt from the Endangered Species Act. Please
dMDtTLFsG97oRMq>  tell federal salmon managers they need to protect the
Klamath River's threatened coho, not authorize another 'license to kill' in
the Klamath Basin!
