American Eagle Foundation

The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) is a non-profit charitable organization established as a citizen’s effort in 1985, and receives no government funding. Its’ mission is to care for and protect the USA’s living symbol of freedom, the Bald Eagle, and other birds of prey through the four pillars of Education, Re-population, Conservation and Rehabilitation. The Foundation’s headquarters are located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in partnership with the Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, TN.

The educational impact of our high-definition nest cams has been phenomenal, providing unprecedented insight into the Bald Eagle nesting process. The AEF operates 3 additional nest cam locations in the eastern part of the United States; DC Eagle Cam, Smoky Mountain Eagle Cam, and Dollywood Eagle Cams. The AEF cam program also focuses on education, conservation, habitat protection, and the dangers that eagles still face in the wild.

The AEF, in cooperation with the USFWS and HDOnTap, provides 24/7 LIVE streaming video of wild eagle activities. Public education and video cam operation relative to the Northeast Florida Nest are provided by the AEF in cooperation with numerous dedicated staff members and volunteers.
