Channel Islands Bald Eagle Restoration

Bald eagles once nested and lived among all of California’s Channel Islands. However, by the early 1960s, bald eagles disappeared from the Channel Islands due to human impacts, including the introduction of DDT. We talk with Annie Little, Montrose Settlements Restoration Program Bird Biologist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, about a successful program to restore bald eagles to the Channel Islands. Find out how you can watch these magnificent birds live online through the “eagle cam” and follow their return to populate their former home.

Everyday Action: Avoid the use of toxic chemicals and keep trash and chemicals out of storm drains. Polluted water from storm drains flows into the sea and can harm marine life and the environment.
