American Bald Eagle Found. Redesign

Raised by 127 people in 26 months
The American Bald Eagle Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of the bald eagle throughout North America. We accomplish this through the production of exciting, engaging educational programs, publications, and one on one experiences with avian ambassadors. We are a unique facility with a combined natural history museum and raptor center located in the Bald Eagle Capital of the United States- Haines, Alaska.

The Foundation is home to twelve avian ambassadors who help us give guests up-close, memorable experiences with wildlife they might not ever get a chance to see in the wild. This connection between guest and ambassador leads to a lasting interest in wildlife conservation.  The yearly influx of travelers who arrive to see the magnificent bald eagles of Haines and the majestic scenery of Southeast Alaska are the perfect audience for our message of conservation.

So where do you come in?

Our hardworking avian ambassadors are in need of new living space. We’ve come together with the Foraker Group, Earthscape Alaska and architect Steve Fishback to redesign our aviaries to be larger, more open, and enriching for our feathered co-workers. Here at the Foundation, we are all about giving our ambassadors as many choices as possible. The more open design would give birds the choice to experience the elements, or to stay out of them, and give guests a chance to interact more closely with birds.  Other improvements to the facility would include landscaping to better immerse ambassadors in their habitat, and more education space for our larger audiences.

These improvements come at a cost. We need contributions from dedicated wildlife lovers like you to make this dream take flight, and help us continue to preserve our nation’s symbol through continued top-notch education! Learn more about our redesign here .

We are so excited! We reached $20,000 this morning. This is an awesome milestone, $20,000 is enough for us to complete the demolition of our current aviaries and start the dirt work for the new aviaries. Thank you so much for all of your help, we have made a ton of progress, but have a long way to go!

Please keep sharing, posting, and donating!
