Over the years, bald eagles have become extinct. They have become extinct because they have been hunted and their environment has been taken away. People began hunting and fishing, taking away bald eagles food. With the reproduction of more people they have had to cut down forests to build homes and other buildings. They have to be the fittest to survive. They have to be able to get their food since most of it is being taken from humans. As more and more bald eagles get killed it causes less and less to be able to reproduce, causing a decrease in their population. Also, a cause in their decreasing population is there egg shells have gotten thinner so they are cracked and broken before the egg is able to hatch. There is not enough space for the bald eagles that are left to live, so they are not only fighting over food but also space to live. But as of 2007 bald eagles are off of the endangered species list because the government is saving them.
