Life of an adopted eaglet can be followed live on the net!

There is an Imperial Eagle pair in the Jászság, which has been attempting to breed without any success for years. Their eggs have proved to be infertile. The case was the same this year, however, a healthy eaglet is being reared in the nest and his life can be followed on the net. How did that happen? It is a beautiful family history straight from the eagle nest.

Adoption of an artificially hatched Imperial Eagle chick by a wild pair

On May 4th, an Imperial Eagle chick hatched in the Great Bustard Rescue Centre at Dévaványa in the the Körös-Maros National Park. The egg was rescued from an abandoned nest ten days ago by associates of the national park. The eight-day-old chick was then placed to a nest of its future foster parents on May 13th, close to the Eagle Centre in the Jászság.

Ten years have passed since the discovery of the first two poisoned Imperial Eagles in Hungary

On March 19, 2005, we received a report about a pair of Imperial Eagles found dead near Jászárokszállás. Experts of MME arrived at the scene and diagnosed probable poisoning. Since MME’s establishment in 1974, there has not been any records of poisoned Imperial Eagles in Hungary. The poisoning rampage has been going on for a decade now and claimed the lives of 76 Imperial Eagles, 101 White-tailed Eagles and more than 600 additional protected and strictly protected birds backed up by evidence, but fortunately human fatality has not occurred yet.
