Adopt Mr. Roosevelt & Eleanor
From: $50.00 / month
‘Eleanor’ & ‘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 man made nest in order to properly mate and raise young!
The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Contributions to the American Eagle Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
The AEF's tax identification number is 58-1652023.
