During October and November, 2016, Challenger has been making appearances in many stadiums and convention centers throughout the United States.
On August 11th, the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) reintroduced an adult Bald Eagle back into the wild after months of rehabilitation. The AEF named the eagle “Summitt” in honor of and in memory of former Lady Vols Coach, Pat Summitt.
This was a monumental summer for the AEF, we released 5 more captive-hatched and translocated eaglets into the wild…with our last release of the summer marking our 150th eaglet set free into the wild from our Douglas Lake “Hack Tower” in East Tennessee!
On Friday morning, June 24th, the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF) released a 13-week-old Bald Eaglet named “Hope” (patagial tag “H6”) into the wild to remember and honor the 49 victims who were recently killed in the Orlando mass shooting on June 12th, 2016.
