Save The Eagles Day
Save the Eagles Day each year on January 10th reminds us of the majestic raptors that soar above the Earth, whether they are abundant or endangered. The bald eagle was removed from this list in June 2007 due to the hard work of scientists and the general public, the bald eagle was removed from this list in June 2007. Poaching, pesticides, and other dangers continue to threaten eagle populations.
Although the day started as a way to save a specific pair of bald eagles and raise concerns of the species, the observance has expanded to include all species of eagles. Around 60 species of eagles populate the world. The majority of the species are found in Eurasia and Africa. About 14 species are found in North, Central, and South America and Australia. However, no eagles have been found in Hawaii. The bald and golden eagles are North America's most common species.
Eagles are a popular species of prey. An eagle's keen sense of sight, as well as strong muscles, piercing talons, and beak make them primed for the hunt. They are also monogamous, mating for life.
