Adopt Mr. Roosevelt & Eleanor
From: $50.00 / month
‘Eleanor’ and ‘Mr. Roosevelt’ are a bonded non-releasable pair of Bald Eagles that live in a private naturally landscaped aviary with a huge nest in Eagle Mountain Sanctuary at Dollywood.
This pair bonded years after they were both transferred to the American Eagle Foundation and placed in the “Pick-A-Mate” section of Eagle Mountain Sanctuary. In 2016, the American Eagle Foundation found two eggs that were laid on the ground in Eagle Mountain Sanctuary, and the eggs were taken to the American Eagle Foundation’s incubation room. One eaglet hatched but unfortunately didn’t make it past its second week.
Later that year, the pair was moved into its own breeding enclosure with its own manmade nest in order to properly mate and raise young!
