Success Stories


Two injured juvenile first year bald eagles were admitted in August 2016 - one from Gary, Ind. and the other from Prophetstown State Park in Central Indiana. On Oct. 21, the bald eagle from Prophetstown State Park was released back home near her nesting site along the Wabash and Tippecanoe River. The bald eagle from Gary was unable to be released due to injuries that prevented him from surviving in the wild. He was recently placed into a santuary.
