Florida Bar Journal: Continued Protection of the Bald Eagle After Delisting
I'd previously posted about the recent decision to remove the bald eagle from the endangered species list. The Florida Bar Journal this month has an article on the protections that remain available for the eagles given the delisting. The article notes that despite being removed from the endangered species list, the eagles are still protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. It also discusses the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Bald Eagle Management Plan and newly adopted Rule 68A-16.002. The article is definitely worth checking out.
