On 9 June 2018 The Associated Press reported:
Chatham County is No. 1 in the state again for the number of bald eagle nests found countywide, with a tally of 27 nests this year, wildlife officials say. That's up from 22 last year, also a state high. Chatham County, with plenty of tall pine trees for nesting and abundant access to fish-filled waters, has topped the list for years, even when the entire state is surveyed. Despite the birds' apparent success, conserving eagles is still important, said Sargent, a program manager with DNR's Nongame Conservation Section.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Many factors have fueled the bald eagle's recovery: a U.S. ban on DDT use in 1972, habitat improvements after enactment of the federal Clean Water and Clean Air acts, protection through the Endangered Species Act, increased public awareness, restoration of local populations through release programs, and forest regrowth.
Yet even with their rebound, eagles still face threats, ranging from a disease called avian vacuolar myelinopathy, spread through the water birds mainly non-coastal eagles prey on, to being shot by people and hit by cars, the Savannah newspaper [Savannah Morning News] reported.
