Return Flight - great documentary on eagles!
Last week, I met Kevin White, a producer and director who showed his video, Return Flight, at the Society of Conservation Biology meeting. This movie is a short film about the extinction of bald eagles from the Channel Islands in California and the long struggle to return them to the ecosystem. It highlights the loss of bald eagles from the lower 48 states last century due to DDT and depicts how difficult and costly recovery can be. Alaska is the only state that maintained healthy eagle populations during that period, and we need to make sure it stays that way!
