Bald Eagles with Tyler Butler – Monday, February 16, 2015
Humans actually put the bald eagle on the endangered list. Matt Whitbeck, wildlife biologist, tells us that a DDT pesticide thinned the egg shell for the bald eagle so they were not reproducing. It would not kill the adult bird, but would prevent them from reproducing.
DDT was banned and now the egg shells are thicker and they are able to reproduce more successfully.
