The American Bald Eagle is the national bird and animal of the United States. It also appears on the Seal of the country. This magnificent creature symbolizes strength, freedom, and power of the American people. The aim of this day is to bring awareness to conservation efforts for the bird, which has come pretty close to extinction, as well as honoring the national symbol.
The American Eagle Foundation sponsors National American Eagle Day to raise awareness about the American Eagle, its habitats, and conservation efforts.
