Video: NASA Helps Survey Bald Eagles

Recommended Posts

Three times a year, NASA aircraft operations use one of NASA’s helicopters to conduct eagle flights with environmental ecologists to keep tabs on eagle nests. Although the bald eagle population is thriving much more today since its federal protection in 1973, an airborne eagle survey in 2013 determined that a thunderstorm caused three nests to drop too low to the ground—one nest with two babies in it. Because of NASA’s and the environmental ecologists’ efforts, they were able to save the baby eagles, and send one back into the wild. Video Credit: NASAKennedy
