Project Main Details
This 3 minute educational video is hosted by a girl park ranger character and her cute, (but silent), island fox. As she swiftly leads us through the video we intercut animation with real footage. The purpose of the video is to educate children / viewers about the conservation work being done to bring Bald Eagles back to the Channel Islands, off the coast of southern California. The video will be shown in various nature center kiosks and will be available for viewing on the internet and possibly other venues. Attached is a drawing of the girl character.

Today we’re taking you to the Channel Islands, which are a group of 8 islands just off the coast of southern California. We’re going to meet a very special bird with a very interesting story - the Bald Eagle.
The Channel Islands are home to a great variety of plants and animals. There are mice and lizards, sea lions and many species of birds - and of course the island fox!
The Bald Eagle is the largest bird that lives here. It’s not really bald but they got their name from an old english word - piebald, which means white headed!
Decades ago, Bald Eagles became scarce on the Channel Islands because island visitors hunted them for sport and collected their eggs for food.
But the main reason why Bald Eagles disappeared from the Channel Islands was because of a chemical called DDT that was used to control insects.
Once DDT got into the environment it caused the eggs to become so thin that they broke when the parent eagle sat on them to keep them warm.
Without new babies being produced the Bald Eagle population couldn’t survive and the eagles disappeared completely from the island ecosystem.
This left the Channel Islands with a very unbalanced food chain since Bald Eagles are top predators and are an important part of a healthy ecosystem.
Don’t worry the story does get better.
In 2002, many years after DDT was banned in the United States, biologists started releasing young eagles onto Santa Cruz Island. After years of hard work by many scientists and government agencies the Bald Eagle population is appearing to become stable and they are nesting on the islands once again.
Today, biologists monitor all of the Channel Islands for Bald Eagle nests each year. And they have discovered that there are almost 60 Bald Eagles living among the islands!
And the best part is - you too can help keep the Bald Eagles safe. All you have to do is avoid using toxic chemicals and keep trash where it belongs…in the trash!
And do me a favor and tell your family and friends too!
