The Roger Williams Park Zoo is home to three rehabilitated bald eagles – each unable to be released back into the wild as a result of wing injuries leaving them unable to fly. The Zoo’s bald eagles are animal ambassadors for their species and teach visitors about the importance of conservation.
Fun Fact: The American bald eagle has been the symbol of the United States since 1872, and is the only eagle to solely live in North America.
