Abstract

Story details the comeback of the Bald Eagle population in Maine since it was placed on the Environmental Protection Agency's Endangered Species list in 1972. Thanks to Frank Gramlich, the grandfather of Maine's bald eagle recovery program, the state has rebuilt the Eagle population after over development, depleted fisheries and environmental contaminants almost decimated the birds.
