SOAR bald eagle data update

Are you a middle school or high school teacher looking to use authentic data in your class? Yes, you say!

Visit this page to learn about the SOAR Student Data Project where you can download a storyline and access SOAR’s bald eagle database of admits from 2015 through 2022.

The 2022 SOAR bald eagle data is complete and has been added to the dataset.

Here’s some snapshots of the data.

How many bald eagles have received a lead test (either a blood lead test or a liver lead test)? SOAR checks lead levels in the vast majority of bald eagle admits – only 12 bald eagles of the 458 admitted from 2015-2022 did not have a lead test done.

One poisoning is one to many. Please hunt and fish lead free. Please continue to encourage others to switch to non-toxic ammunition and tackle.
