The powerful golden eagle faces serious challenges throughout its North American range. In the sagebrush steppe of the American West, the bird is affected by habitat loss from development, fire, agriculture, and invasive plants; collisions with vehicles and manmade structures such as wind turbines; electrocution on power lines; poisoning; poaching; and other factors. Threats are increasing, and golden eagles are a species of serious conservation concern.
“Witnesses to a Changing West: The Golden Eagles of Greater Yellowstone’s Bighorn Basin” is a film made for public broadcasting that will educate the public about golden eagles and a region that is often overshadowed by more well-known areas like Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. The film will inspire people to care about the golden eagle and hopefully to get involved in conservation of the birds.
