Duke Farms Eagle Cam

Healthy Habitats

Bald Eagles depend on clean and healthy rivers, tall trees, and abundant wild fish. That’s what Duke Farms works hard to provide every day.

Partnership Overview

n partnership with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, the Duke Farms Eagle Cam offers an up-close and personal view into the lives of a pair of Bald Eagles as they breed, incubate and raise young. Duke Farms is restoring the environment to support the return of Bald Eagles to New Jersey. Eagles need healthy forests, healthy rivers, and healthy populations of fish to thrive. Join our worldwide community of eagle watchers! 

 

Remember, although we have access to witness their behaviors, the eagles are still wild animals. If you find the nesting behaviors of the eagle chicks bothersome or disturbing, do not watch the Eagle Cam.
