One of the objectives for Marco Island Nature Preserve and Bird Sanctuary is to educate the importance of preserving our island’s green space and protecting its wildlife. Broadcasting our eagle’s activity through this online eagle camera will make it easy for our school age children and eagle lovers everywhere to view these magnificent birds from anywhere in the world. We have all heard the adage, “a picture says a thousand words,” imagine how many words this eagle cam will say!
In response to the public outpouring of interest in eagle cams, the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation (MESF) took on a fundraising project to make this happen. The goal was to have the eagle cam system installed at the Preserve in September of 2017 before for the start of the eagle nesting season in October. But, due to hurricane Irma we were delayed until the 2018 nesting season. We are very happy to finally have our camera up and running and await the return of our nesting pair.
