When looking at all of the animals currently residing on the endangered species list, it can sometimes feel like conservation groups are fighting a losing battle against factors like climate change, pesticides and human impact. However, the conservation success story of the bald eagle has proved that sometimes a species can be given a new chance at life.
Fun fact: Bald eagles were given their name not because they’re actually bald, but because “bald” meant “white” or “white-headed.” Learn more about the history of the bald eagle in the timeline below:
Once the government realized that the bald eagles were in danger, several measures were put in place.
Many organizations and groups outside of the government also worked hard on bringing back the eagles and continue to support the species today.
Even though the bald eagle is no longer in danger of becoming extinct, it’s still important to keep the areas where they live safe and to spread the word, so that everyone feels responsible for protecting the species.
I had no idea that bald eagles were endangered once! This really makes me want to help other endangered species.
I think people should more often help animals instead of being cruel to them.
I agree. Animals need saving more than they need cruelty( they never needed cruelty in the first place but…).
that is cool
WOW!!!! That is so cool one day I hope there are many Eagles in the world .
