Educational Resources

Information that can be accessed from this page includes: links to eagle cams, information about Bald Eagles and other eagles, spectacular photos and videos of eagles, teaching units on the Bald Eagle, laws pertaining to Bald Eagle protection, where to go to see eagles in the wild, eagle festivals, information and maps showing how the Bald Eagle came back from being an endangered species, what you can do to help eagles, how the Bald Eagle became the national symbol for the United States — and many other topics pertaining to eagles.

Many thanks to Bob Hatcher, Retired Coordinator (2001); Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, for compiling this comprehensive list of Eagle Resources for the American Eagle Foundation. Sadly, Bob passed away July 22, 2014. We will miss his guidance and expertise in "all things eagle."
