Owls of the Eastern Ice: Blakiston’s Fish Owl Conservation in Russia
Jonathan Slaght is a conservation biologist working in Primorye, Russia, a remote, mountainous region populated by tigers, bears, and a remarkable assemblage of bird species. One of these birds, which Slaght has studied since 2006, is the Blakiston’s fish owl: an endangered salmon-eater and the largest owl species in the world. Slaght’s account of his work with these birds, called “Owls of the Eastern Ice,” was published in summer 2020 to acclaim. It was named a New York Times Notable Book for 2020, longlisted for a 2020 National Book Award for Nonfiction, and called one of the Ten Best Books of 2020 by the Wall Street Journal. Here, he will describe fish owls and his project, including details of the adventures and struggles of fieldwork, and on-going conservation efforts with this endangered species.
