Bald Eagle Management Plan: Haliaeetus leucocephalus
The dramatic recovery of the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in the past 35 years represents one of the great conservation success stories in our nationís history. This management plan provides the framework for the conservation and management of the bald eagle in Florida to ensure its continued recovery. This plan meets the requirements of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissionís (FWC) listing process (Rule 68A-27.0012, Florida Administrative Code [F.A.C.]). The listing process was initiated in July 2002, when the FWC was petitioned to reevaluate the status of the bald eagle, which was considered a threatened species in Florida (Rule 68A-27.004, F.A.C.). Action on the petition was delayed due to a listing moratorium, which was lifted in April 2005.
