On The Cover 
Throughout its history, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has played a pivotal role in the conservation of bald eagles by helping to bring about a change in public attitudes toward the once heavily hunted birds. WCS was on the forefront of research into the impact of pesticide use on bald eagles. To confront ongoing threats posed by habitat fragmentation, resource extraction, and climate change, WCS’s North America Program continues to employ science-based solutions to protect eagles and other iconic wildlife throughout their range. Bald eagles are on exhibit at both the Bronx and Queens Zoos, the one on the cover is from Queens. The birds there are named after previous Queens Borough President (and longtime zoo fan) Claire Schulman and her husband Mel.
