About Eagles Of The WorldTM Foundation
The mission of the newly established Eagles Of The WorldTM Foundation is to preserve the Earth’s biological diversity as it relates to securing the future of “critically rare” eagle species in their natural environments and ecosystems.
More than half of the world’s birds of prey have declining global populations. Of the nearly 70 known species of Eagles currently living on Planet Earth, over half of these are listed as Critically Endangered (CE), Endangered (EN), Vulnerable (VU), or Nearly Threatened (NT).
Eagles of the WorldTM Foundation was launched in 2019 by retired American Eagle Foundation Founder & President, Al Cecere. After decades of helping Bald Eagle conservation efforts in the United States, Cecere wanted to continue his passion for helping eagles by extending his conservation efforts worldwide.
