Stop by to visit an American icon, Sequoyah the bald eagle. Bald eagles like Sequoyah are typically brought to rehabilitation centers for injuries caused by power lines, cars and hunting. The species is federally protected, and all releasable bald eagles are required by law to be returned to the wild. Sequoyah, who came to Zoo Atlanta from a rehabilitation center in 2015, is not a candidate for re-release because of a permanent wing injury.
Found only in North America and named the national bird of the U.S. in 1782, the bald eagle is a conservation success story. Driven nearly to extinction in the 20th century, the species was removed from the Endangered Species List in 2007 but remains protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty and state laws.
Zoo Atlanta offers free admission year-round to honor those who serve or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The Veterans Day discount, which includes discounted admission for accompanying guests, is valid only on Monday, November 11, 2019, and may not be combined with any other offer or promotion.
