Golden Eagle Survey Protocols

The Golden Eagle Project is a partnership of the National Eagle Center and Audubon Minnesota, with participation from Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and funding support from through Minnesota’s Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.

The Golden Eagle Project aims to:

  • Understand habitat needs and prey requirements of golden eagles using the blufflands of southeast Minnesota, western Wisconsin and northeast Iowa
  • Determine breeding origins and migration patterns for this population of golden eagles
  • Educate the public about golden eagles
  • Encourage conservation of critical habitats in the blufflands region
