  • Navajo Nation lists bald eagle as endangered

    by Felicia Fonseca

    The Navajo Nation has guaranteed protections for the bald eagle by adding it to the tribe’s endangered species list a year after the federal government removed the bird from its list.

    David Mikesic, a zoologist with the tribe’s Natural Heritage Program under Navajo Fish and Wildlife, said the September approval of protections for the bald eagle represents a move within the agency to become more of a player in the recovery of the species.
