Marco Island Bald Eagles
First, ever heard of the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation, also known as MESF? They are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the objective to preserve American bald eagles and their habitats. Operating on Marco Island, Florida, they work with people who live on Marco Island and local organizations to ensure the safety of the bald eagles there. They seek to expand the bald eagle population on Marco Island by educating the community about the importance of these birds. Take a look at these love birds!
Next, Hurricane Irma came in with a direct landfall hit on Marco Island, Florida. As a result, they suffered a fair amount of damage. Furthermore, it also prevented the installation of an eagle cam. Fortunately, the resident bald eagles, Paleo and Calusa, and their nest tree survived. However, the day after the storm hit, both eagles worked to repair and fortify it. Nesting season has arrived! So the folks at the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation look forward to having some eaglets in the near-future. Consequently, the excitement spread to Stuffed Safari too. Check out this picture of the eagles nesting there. We look forward to showcasing some more pictures of the eggs and eaglets as they arrive.
