The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of American, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.
After nearly disappearing from most of the United States decades ago, the bald eagle is now off the "threatened and endangered" species list.
However, much work still needs to be done. To learn more about eagles, visit the “Educational Resources” section of the American Eagle Foundation web site, http://www.eagles.org.
