Soaring Success: Bald Eagle Population Has Quadrupled Since 2009

Bald eagles, once on the endangered species list, are now thriving.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said in a new report that bald eagles have quadrupled in numbers since 2009.
One official called it, “a truly historic conservation success story.”

The bald eagle population had severely declined between 1870 and 1970 because of hunting, habitat loss, and the use of DDT (a powerful insecticide).
