Tom Murphy, retired biologist from the SCDNR and the principal investigator for the state's Bald Eagle Program, will share the story of the Bald Eagles in the lowcountry. From near extinction to recovery, this presentation will trace the success and the challenges facing the Bald Eagle. Many reasons contributed to the decline of the national bird, which disappeared from the lowcountry landscape for many years. These spectacular predators were removed from the endangered species list in 2007, and are now a common sight locally. Learn why our national bird nearly went extinct, about the efforts to bring them back, and what should we do to secure the future of this magnificent bird.
