The magnificent Blakiston’s Fish Owl is the largest owl in the world. It lives in rugged and remote areas of Primorye Province in extreme eastern Russia in areas along rivers that flow to the Sea of Japan. Tonight’s guest on Inquiry is JONATHAN C. SLAGHT. He is the Russia and Northern Asia coordinator for the Wildlife Conservation Society. For years he has studied this fish owl in it’s natural habitat to develop a conservation plan for its survival. Now, he has written a book about these adventures: OWLS OF THE EASTERN ICE: A QUEST TO FIND AND SAVE THE WORLD’S LARGEST OWL
