Bald Eagle

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meets Wednesday and Thursday at Tallahassee's Ramada Conference Center, 2900 N. Monroe St., and will consider several issues.

Wednesday's agenda includes final action on the proposed management plan for bald eagles and deletion of the bald eagle from the list of threatened species. The commission also will consider proposed rules prohibiting taking, feeding, disturbance, possession, sale, purchase or barter of any bald eagle and its nest or eggs, except as authorized by permit. The rules also would prohibit any person from entering an area on public lands that has been posted as closed for protection of the bald eagle.
