American Bald Eagle
The American Bald Eagle Foundation (ABEF) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation and propagation of the American Bald Eagle and its habitat throughout North America. The foundation has built and operates an educational Center in Haines Alaska close to the unspoiled natural laboratory of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. This preserve is the site of the greatest gathering of eagles in the world. The research and instruction made possible by this Center helps to educate thousands of visitors each year of the critical role we all play in protecting and helping to re-establish wildlife species like the eagle to its former range.
Through a cooperative agreement, Watchable Wildlife, Inc. is working with the ABEF on a number of key goals:
- Expanding the interpretive displays of the foundation's museum
- Develop educational programs to help teach the important lessons learned from our work with bald eagles
- Promote outreach programs to help communities build an economic base through wildlife tourism, while protecting the habitat and species visitors come to view.
- Work with the ABEF and the City of Haines to grow the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival as an economically viable tool for teaching the cultural and natural history of the American Bald Eagle.
