Watch Episode Two: Bald Eagles
Inside the Episode
Episode Two of Untamed focuses on Bald Eagles. In this episode, Wildlife Center staff members discuss the conservation successes of Bald Eagles, as well as the threats that eagles still face today, including lead poisoning and vehicle collisions. Buddy, the Wildlife Center's non-releasable Bald Eagle ambassador, is featured.
Read the stories of the eagles featured within this episode!
Watch our Critter Cams! Buddy, along with several other education ambassadors, often appears on Critter Cam 1.
Remember the Rock Stars? Buddy wasn't the only eaglet from the Norfolk Botanical Garden nest cam to come to the Center; in 2011, his little siblings arrived after their mother was hit and killed by a plane.
Help us care for Buddy through our Caring for Critters sponsorship program. You'll get all the inside news on Buddy through regular email updates!
