There’s good news on the Indiana ecology front: Bald Eagles are now thriving in the Hoosier State.

The bird has been removed from Indiana’s list of state endangered and special concern species in response to evidence of the species making one of the greatest conservation success stories in the state.

The last eagle nest before 1940, when conservation efforts were signed into legislation, had been in the 1890s.

The first successful nesting effort came in 1991, six years after the species was reintroduced to the state.
