This Week on Explore (4/5)

This week, we celebrated Bald Eagle Week to drive awareness of bald eagle conservation and to highlight our incredible partners who educate and support eagle research. As of today, we have raised over $4,500 that will be MATCHED to help both Raptor Resource Project and Institute for Wildlife Studies. Our campaign officially ends on Sunday so if you would like to buy a limited edition “Bald Eagle Week” shirt, your contributions will continue to be matched.

On explore.org, we have an incredible opportunity to watch eagles all over the United States, but there was a time when some of these populations struggled to survive. In 1963, there were only 483 breeding pairs left in the United States and there were none located in the Channel Islands area.

This week, we had a very special edition of Fitz Facts that focused on the incredible comeback story of eagle populations. Watch here:

It was a bittersweet week at the Decorah North nest. At the beginning of this week, the Norths welcomed two newly hatched eaglets. Unfortunately, one eaglet has passed away but there is still one very healthy eaglet on the nest.
