Sign Up to be an Eagle Watcher!
Based at Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, Audubon EagleWatch seeks information about Bald Eagles, active nest locations and possible disturbances or threats to nesting activities. As one of the premier community science programs in Florida, EagleWatch works to protect approximately 40% of the state's nesting pairs.
The EagleWatch program provides valuable information on nesting activity and the current trends of eagle populations in Florida. As a volunteer, you’ll spend some time monitoring one or more eagle nests in Manatee County. These observation reports will help eagle biologists to determine the right conservation measures to ensure the success of the species. Additionally, the reports may be used by law enforcement agencies to prevent any harm to the birds and their nesting sites.
If you're interested in monitoring nesting eagles for the 2020-2021 season, please contact Zach Holmes (Zholmes003@gmail.com). Source: Audubon Florida https://cbop.audubon.org/conservation/about-eaglewatch-program
