Conserving the Nature of America
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
Bald Eagle Population Size
Since the bald eagle was fully listed under the Endangered Species Act, the number of nesting bald eagle pairs and productivity (number of young fledged per nest) have been monitored throughout the lower 48 states. This effort has produced an excellent data set which was used to develop the population table, map and chart in the links below. Follow these links to see how bald eagle numbers have responded since DDT was banned and the Endangered Species Act was passed.
