National Save The Eagles Day

National Save the Eagles Day is dedicated to the unique predators that inhabit our land. Majestic birds conquer with strength and grace… When they are gliding in the air, it seems to us that they are relaxed, and nature gives them everything they need for a comfortable stay. Is it so?

History

Some time ago, eagles were on the verge of extinction, but thanks to the well-coordinated work of people, they were saved in 2007. A little later, bird protection communities created a National Day to save several eagles whose habitat had changed for the worse. The activists succeeded, but they decided to leave the holiday and scaled it up – today it affects all types of birds and extends to the entire territory of America. Other states with similar problems are also involved.
