Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Living with Wildlife
A peaceful coexistence between humans and wildlife is possible in a healthy environment. Education and proper wildlife management can often resolve conflicts with nature.
Uncontrolled development may eliminated our wildlife heritage and threatens our own health. Living in harmony with nature requires protection of natural habitat and land management.
Bald eagles were once a rare sight in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Agricultural pesticides disrupted their reproduction. Eagles made an amazing comeback since DDT was banned. Restoring habitat will help make sure generations can enjoy our national symbol in the wild.
