Making a Special Holiday Appearance

A juvenile Bald Eagle was recently sighted hunting in the Nature Center's eucalyptus groves. After being on the verge of extinction (because of pesticide exposure and habitat loss), these incredible birds are now flourishing and venturing out into new terrain during their travels. This is in large part due to the Endangered Species Act. Did you know that polar bears are a threatened species? To find out more about the animals who could use your help, explore the WWF and US Fish and Wildlife Service websites.
