AEF Updates & Events
On June 20th, 2017, the American Eagle Foundation, along with the United States Congress and Governors coast to coast, invite U.S. citizens to celebrate “American Eagle Day” by remembering the Bald Eagle’s dramatic comeback, reflecting on its special symbolism, and conducting educational activities and ceremonies.
ER2 and ER3, along with an eaglet hatched by Honor & Braveheart (HB), are all in excellent health and have begun the second stage of their life in their new compartments at the AEF hack tower on Douglas Lake.
The country owes thanks to Al Cecere, the volunteers and staff at the American Eagle Foundation, and to the many volunteers, conservation agency staffers, and other nonprofit organizations doing their best every day to keep an eagle eye on the raptor populations and make sure the majestic Bald Eagle and other birds of prey are with us long into the future.
Peace is in rehab at the Audubon Birds of Prey Center in Maitland Florida. Follow his progress!
On the morning of March 2, at 8:35 a.m. EST, Hope became the youngest eaglet in the history of this nest (10 weeks, 2 days) to fly away and begin a new chapter in her life as a mighty eagle!
In 2016, it was the intention of the AEF to actually install a camera over the nest so viewers could finally watch the intimate daily lives of this eagle family.
There’s a new eagle pair in town…
After five months of treatment at the American Eagle Foundation, the eagle has made significant progress with its recovery.
