The Bald Eagle was once an important avian predator in the Channel Islands, a group of islands just off the coast of Southern California. In the early 1960s, the Bald Eagle disappeared from the islands due to egg collecting, hunting and extensive DDT contamination in the marine environment. Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film chronicles the work of a dedicated team of biologists that has been working tirelessly for decades to restore the Bald Eagle back to the Channel Island.
Written, directed and produced by Kevin White.
