After 35 Years of Recovery Efforts, Bald Eagles Are No Longer Considered Endangered in Vermont

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/bald-eagle-removed-from-vermonts-endangered-species-list-180979582/?utm_source=smithsoniandaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20220216-daily-responsive&spMailingID=46410439&spUserID=MTIwOTQxNDc4OTA2MgS2&spJobID=2181903493&spReportId=MjE4MTkwMzQ5MwS2


Vermont was the only state in the continental U.S. without successfully breeding eagles until September 2008, when a bald eagle pair finally raised a young eagle. Now the state has reached its recovery goals for the bird.  VTFWD via Facebook
