Brought To You By … the Bald Eagle

In sometimes surprising ways, associations play direct and indirect roles in bringing the products, services, and activities of daily life to people around the world. This time, learn how the bald eagle has landed.

National Endangered Species Act Reform Coalition: Although it was once at risk of extinction, the American bald eagle was removed from the protection of the Endangered Species Act in 2007 by the U.S. Department of the Interior. For those animals still protected under the ESA, the National Endangered Species Act Reform Coalition is dedicated to their survival and helps promote legislative and regulatory improvements to the act.

American Political Items Collectors: In honor of ­Presidents’ Day, we salute the presidential flag, which prominently displays an image of the bald eagle—also an icon of the United States. We wonder if members of the American Political Items ­Collectors have any of these flags ­waving around in their collections?

American Birding Association: Interested in furthering your ornithological knowledge? Join the American Birding Association, the only North American association dedicated to recreational birders. Through its educational programs, publications, partnerships, and networks, the association aims to inspire all people to enjoy and protect wild birds, including bald eagles.
