Save The Eagle Programs

The work of the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) reaches out to the entire United States from its Dollywood headquarters in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The American Eagle Foundation develops, conducts and supports a wide range of eagle restoration, protection and enhancement programs, including an extensive public awareness and environmental education effort.

The AEF operates the largest Bald Eagle captive breeding program in the world, under U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency guidance. The AEF launched a national "Protect America's Eagles" Campaign, and declared the years 2001 - 2010 as the Decade Of The Eagle.

Our goal is to Build A Nest-Egg that will help protect America's majestic eagles and their precious natural habitat. The work of the American Eagle Foundation is dedicated to ensuring the future survival of the U.S.A.'s Bald Eagles for generations to come, while helping to protect the natural resources that sustain us all.
