This funding opportunity is an ongoing effort to ensure bald eagles are managed so that they remain a success story.
Existing management actions provide important population and nest success that allows for adaptive management of local closures to reduce impacts to recreation users on public lands
while meeting the objects for bald eagles.
Strong science is continuously being evaluated and re-evaluated for best practices to inform management of bald eagles.
This has led to the southwest population of bald eagles being removed from the list of threatened and endangered species list.
Breeding bald eagles are sensitive to human disturbance.
The Bald Eagle Nest Watch Program has been successful in increasing nest success by reducing conflicts with bald eagles.
This project is vital to ensure the bald eagle population in Arizona continues to thrive and avoid once again being federally listed as endangered species.
