Out of every American state, Alaska has more Bald Eagles, around 30,000. For comparison, the population of Alaska's capital, Juneau, is only 32,000. Although many may think the Bald Eagles settled in Alaska because of the climate, the opposite is true.

Bald Eagles do not care about the environment; they can live in the hot deserts of Mexico, the humid forests of Louisiana, & the coldest Arctic regions.

Bald Eagles love Alaska because of its plentiful resources. Alaska has some of the cleanest water in the world, significant amounts of prey, & untouched wilderness, contrary to America's more industrialised states. For Bald Eagles, Alaska is paradise.
