1950 CEGreat Lakes, USA

“The introduction of protective legislation, including the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources' Game and Fish Act in 1890, and the American Bald Eagle Act in 1940 helped the southern Ontario eagle population rebound to approximately 100 pairs by 1950. Unfortunately, this recovery was short-lived . . .”
