Bald Eagles Soar in Ohio's Skies
The bald eagle, our nation’s symbol, was once an endangered species. But now it is doing very well. For example, in 1979, only four nesting pairs of bald eagles lived in Ohio. As of 2004, our state’s bald eagle population includes more than 100 nesting pairs! Find out more on this Ohio website.
Black Bears are Back!
The good news today is that black bears are back in Ohio! There are about 100 black bears now living in the wild in our state. And some female bears (known as sows) have been seen with cubs, so wildlife biologists know that bears are reproducing and the population is growing. Bears have returned because some forests, their habitat, have grown back. Learn more on this Ohio Division of Wildlife website.
