Bald Eagle- A White River Wildlife Refuge Success Story

01 Feb 2014 5:12 AM | Jim Taylor (Administrator)

The bald eagle was totally wiped out from Arkansas as a nesting species by 1930. A reintroduction program was initiated in 1982. From a single pair on White River National Wildlife Refuge in 1982 the Arkansas population has grown to over 80 "breeding" pairs!

Well more than a thousand bald eagles are believed to be "wintering" this season in Arkansas.

The Interior Department finally removed the American bald eagle from the endangered species list on June 28, 2007.
