La popolazione dell'aquila calva americana è quadruplicata da allora 2009, dice il rapporto

Aquile calve, una volta nell'elenco delle specie in via di estinzione, ora stanno prosperando, according to a recent rapporto.

L'US Fish and Wildlife Service ha affermato in un nuovo rapporto che le aquile calve sono quadruplicate da allora 2009. Al di sopra di 316,700 bald eagles, e più di 71,400 nesting pairs, were present in the lower 48 states during the 2019 breeding season, secondo il rapporto.
This is truly a historic conservation success story,” US Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland said in a news briefing.
      The bald eagle has always been considered a sacred species to American Indian people and similarly it’s sacred to our nationThe strong return of this treasured bird reminds us of our nation’s shared resilience and the importance of being responsible stewards of our lands and waters that bind us together.″
        Bald eagle populations severely declined in the lower 48 states between 1870 e 1970 because of hunting, habitat loss and the use of DDT, a powerful insecticide that made bald eagle eggshells so weak they couldn’t produce viable offspring.
            Nel 1963, c'erano solo 417 breeding pairs, and in a national effort to save the iconic bird, the federal government banned the use of DDT in 1972. The bald eagle was then placed under protection of the Endangered Species Act, which allowed the government to protect the habitats of bald eagles.
            Bald eagles were removed from the list in 2007 and are now protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
