The White-tailed Eagle in Sweden – a conservation success story. October 2016
Sea eagles were once an endangered species in Sweden. Now they are a common sight in many Swedish regions and around the Baltic Sea.
White-tailed Eagle numbers in Sweden were estimated to be around 500 pairs before the population declined due to persecution. In 1924, when the White-tailed Eagle was protected by law, perhaps 50 pairs remained in Sweden. In the 50´s about 100 pairs were counted, but during the 70´s the eagle population faced extinction again because of environmental toxins like DDT.
According to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, today the country is home to about 700 White-tailed Eagle breeding pairs.
