Bald Eagle Recovers from Edge of Extinction

Hosted by

In 1967, there were just 417 breeding pairs of Bald Eagles in America, despite that bird's iconic status. Today, there are more than 10,000, evidence of what the Audubon Society calls "one of the greatest conservation success stories in US history. At the Jefferson Memorial today, a Bald Eagle was part of the proceedings as the species was officially removed from the endangered list. Kieran Suckling is policy director at the Center for Biological Diversity in Arizona.
