Was it too late to save the Bald Eagle? For hundreds of years, this amazing bird lived peacefully in North America. Yet by the 1940s, years of hunting, land encroachment, and the deadly pesticide DDT had pushed the animal to the brink of extinction. Would people find a way to help the Bald Eagle survive? In Bald Eagles: A Chemical Nightmare, children relive the inspiring and heroic efforts of people who stepped in to save this remarkable bird when all seemed lost. Through this true tale of wildlife survival, children discover the bold and creative ideas that Americans and their government have used to protect and care for the country’s endangered wildlife. Full-color photographs and a habitat map enrich this heartfelt story of conservationism and courage.
