Attorney General Pam Bondi Releases Audubon’s 525th Rehabilitated Bald Eagle

Bondi Release_webAudubon Florida chose to honor Attorney General Pam Bondi with a BaldĀ Eagle release due to her consistent action as a member of the Cabinet to assure purchase of conservation easements on ranchland in the Kissimmee River Watershed.

The Kissimmee watershed is the stronghold of Florida’s Bald Eagle populations. The Rural and Family Lands Protection Program operated by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services purchases conservation easements over ranchlands, preventing them from ever being developed. Attorney General Bondi has consistently acted to vote favorably on these conservation easement purchases.

The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey treats more than 700 patients annually with 12% being Bald Eagles.

  1. Congrats, now the eagles can choke on all the power plant emissions. This is just a ploy for Bondo to cover for her recent assault on Florida’s air breathing wildlife (including humans) cancel my membership.

  2. Dear “Eagle Eye”: It is a rare politician that causes us to agree with them all the time. As a matter of fact…I can’t think of one who ever has. If you have watched Bondi’s cabinet votes recently, you would know that she has stood tall to assure progress on buying conservation easements to prevent the Northern Everglades from turning into a sea of pavement. Sometimes she has had to vote against the Governor to get those things done.

  3. So does the Florida Audubon agree with Bondi’s position on Chesapeake Bay, and suing the EPA on behalf of polluters like Koch Fertilizer, LLC?
    She talks about billionaires being bullies, yet she is right there when the Koch Brothers call.
    If the Florida Audubon believes this behaviour should be rewarded, then they should give back all their donations.

  4. Eagle Eye: Of course not. See my earlier reply.
