The Service developed Resource Equivalency Analysis tools to calculate the compensatory mitigation needed to offset permitted eagle take via direct mortality, disturbance, or territory loss using power pole retrofits. Electrocution of eagles by power pole elements is a significant cause of mortality to eagles. The Resource Equivalency Analysis estimates the number of high-risk poles that would need to be retrofitted per eagle taken.
