When, at the millennium-shift, Eagle72 looked back on their work they could see that all efforts had been very successful.
The white-tailed eagle population, which when started was close to collapse, was rescued, mainly because of the winter feeding.
The Swedish population had more than three-doubled since the start and in the breeding season 1999, there were 200 flying chicks, the best result during the 1900s.
During the 2000s the breeding population has continued to increase and now there are about 600 breeding pairs in Sweden. The white-tailed eagle does also spread to areas where it has been disappeared for a very long time, In Vänern, the largest lake in Sweden, the eagles were back in 2001, breeding for the first time in 100 years.
These findings alone show the importance of how correctly run and sustainable supplemented feeding of species can play a huge role in successful breeding and conservation efforts.
