Save The River Supports Bald Eagle Research

January 6th, 2010 | Posted by Kate

This fall, Save The River joined dozens of other supporters in funding a satellite telemetry unit on a juvenile Bald Eagle in the Thousand Islands.

Biologists from Bird Studies Canada placed satellite telemetry units on two male juvenile Bald Eagles in an effort to understand the movements of young eagles during the first 3 -5 years of life. Satellite telemetry units allow for biologists to assess real time data on the locations of juveniles to determine if they are spending time in contaminated ‘hotspots’ in the Great Lakes region and whether the young will return to their birth spot to eventually raise their own young.

To learn more about this research effort and how you can be involved visit Bird Studies Canada’s Bald Eagle website.

To track the two young Bald Eagles who were born in the Thousand Islands during summer 09 (Hal and Moose), visit the Eagle Tracker website.
