Why have breeding programs for the bald eagle been so successful?



  1. 0 Votes

    Well, to begin with, bald eagles are willing to breed in captivity, unlike other animals (like Pandas). But also, bald eagles have a quick turn around rate, taking only 35 days to hatch their eggs, and their fledglings only take 11 weeks to grow into eagles capable of leaving the nest and forming their own. Since each female eagle lays 2 – 3 eggs, that means you have a potential pool of a dozen new eagles per female a year, which adds up.

    I hope this helped!
