Eagles are a beautiful bird and a political symbol in the United States. Yet they are also an endangered species. Special interest has been taken to help these beautiful birds even though they are certainly not the only endangered species we are dealing with. There a lot of species that are endangered but Eagles seem to get a lot of attention because how important they are to our nation as a symbol.
In the early days of our nation, the founding fathers entered into a debate about which animal or bird should symbolize our values and ideals. Rumor has it that in addition to people being in support of the eagle, others wanted birds such as the turkey. Benjamin Franklin argued that the turkey was clever and intelligent. Now, when someone is called a “turkey” it is usually in a derogatory manner. It is a good that eagles became our official bird! It is a lot more majestic and beautiful in appearance than the turkey and the eagle has a lot of beauty.
If you are interested in helping the eagles, there are a few things you can do. First, if you are somewhere and you spot an eagle’s nest, it is a good idea to report it so that the officials can come and do their best to protect it. Part of the problem with the eagles and their endangered status is that a good portion of their natural habitat is being destroyed by commercialism and other factors. That leaves a smaller number of options for the eagles to nest and produce offspring. This has led to a decline in the number of eagles that are being born each year which only contributes to the problem
Other things you can do to help the eagles include making monetary donations and supporting groups that help the eagles. You can also volunteer your time. The internet is a good place to go to find resources on eagles. The more you know, the easier it will be to help them. You can also use the internet to help you find organizations that help the eagles. Their situation is improving because of these efforts and with each person who helps, their chances of surviving are much greater.
