Nine Endangered Species that are Being Protected by the U.S. Military

Hundreds of U.S. military installations have become “islands of protection in seas of development.” The Department of Defense has over 25 million acres of land under its jurisdiction, including habitats of key endangered plants and animals that are preserved from encroaching civilian development.  More than 300 listed endangered species make a home on U.S. military installations and hundreds of others are threatened.  Here are nine of them.

1. Bald Eagle

The American Bald Eagle is preserved at U.S. military installations.

The Bald Eagle is present at a number of U.S. military sites including Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland which is a prime nesting area.  Fort Riley in Kansas is one of the largest wintering spots for the bald eagle in the U.S., with up to 388 eagles observed in camp at a time.
