Golden Eagles and the AEF
Golden Eagles at the AEF
The AEF has a breeding pair of non-releasable Golden Eagles, Wankan Tankan & Cheyenne, and three other non-releasable Golden Eagles.
How many Golden Eagles has the AEF released into the wild?
As of 2014, we have released 47 Golden Eaglets into the wild in cooperation with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency & the United States Fish & Wildlife Service. Two eggs were laid in 2015, but these were infertile and did not hatch.
A heartwarming and successful Golden Eagle release story from AEF’s archived news blogs can be seen here.
