The burrowing owl is endangered in Canada and Colorado, and threatened in Mexico. It is also a species of special concern in most of the western US and Florida. For this reason they are protected in these three countries. Even so, many Burrowing Owls are killed and their habitats destroyed through land development. Another cause for their endangerment is the use of pesticides and the changing of the climate which has caused droughts in the inhabited areas.
Burrowing Owls are not an endangered species in the United States, though they are a concern. In 1995, they were labeled endangered in Canada. Mexico labeled them threatened in 1994. The population in general is rated “Least Concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
