The White Tailed Eagle

Episode 5 of 5

Rob Newman tell the story of the near-extinction of the White Tailed Eagle from the skies of the United Kingdom. And what we can learn from their triumphant return.

Rob Newman tells the story of a species we very nearly lost forever, and asks what we can learn from their triumphant return.

The White Tailed Eagle went extinct in England in 1780. They held on in Scotland until 1916. In summer 2019, a White Tailed Eagle flew triumphantly across the British countryside once again. We played a huge role in their near-extinction. Perhaps by understanding what so nearly wiped them out, we can play a role in their return.
