'Romancing the Eagle: The Recovery of the Bald Eagle in Ohio' presented by Harvey Webster, Director of Wildlife Resources at the Museum.
At the time of European contact in the 1600s, the Bald Eagle enjoyed a range that encompassed most of North America. Yet over the intervening years it endured such persecution, habitat loss and degradation that by the 1970s its breeding range had contracted to only a handful of states and its numbers had withered. The banning of certain pesticides, intensive management, vigorous protection and enforcement of endangered species laws, as well as the conservation of wetlands have brought about a renaissance of this noble raptor. In this illustrated program we will chronicle the history of the Bald Eagle in the Ohio and celebrate its return. We will also elucidate the role that the Cleveland Museum of Natural History played in the recovery.
