Bald eagle restoration work performed in cooperation with the Vermont Natural Heritage Program

1 recipient will receive $99,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The establishment of a permanent breeding population of bald eagles in the Lake Champlain watershed of Vermont. Eaglets will be obtained from permanently injured captive pairs, and from wild nests in states such as Maryland and Maine, where large numbers of eagles are present. Captive raised and donor eaglets will be transported to Vermont and released through a proven technique known as hacking. Hacking towers (surrogate nesting platforms) have been constructed and eagle chicks will be placed in them where they are fed and continuously monitored for several weeks until they fledge. Funds would be used to hire climbers who will obtain the eaglets, cover transportation costs, purchase equipment and food for the birds, monitor the eagles when they leave the hack tower, provide veterinary care, and provide hack site attendants. Finally, the funds would be used to develop and implement a statewide public outreach and education program, which would focus on the benefits associated with bringing the bald eagle back to Vermont.
