Extraordinary Eagles

America’s national symbol, the Bald Eagle is a majestic bird representing strength. But with threats including hunting and pesticides decimating the eagle population, this magnificent bird of prey spent more than three decades on the Endangered Species List. We want to thank Audubon supporters like you for all you do to protect eagles. Together we will protect America’s national symbol from continued threats including improperly sited wind farms. Your actions are what keep eagles flying. Thanks for all you do.

Although pesticide use and habitat loss nearly eliminated the Bald Eagle population in most of the lower 48 states in the early 20th century, conservation efforts by Audubon and other organizations led to a remarkable recovery of the species.
