A View from the Eagle's Eye

A View from the Eagle's Eye

"According to the U.N., forests have disappeared in 25 countries, and another 29 nations have lost more than 90%."

- Tom Wathen, land conservation program director

Each year, millions of birds journey from Alaska and the Arctic into the Lower 48 states and back again. In the midst of these epic migrations, one bird soars above the rest: the golden eagle.

These majestic creatures travel from caves and cliffs near ancient rivers, across the seemingly endless Arctic tundra, and through the Canadian boreal forest on their path toward the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, the rest of the American West, and beyond.

Considered by many Native groups to be the link between humanity and nature, golden eagles soar over much of the land Pew works to protect. Following these birds on their journey gives us a glimpse of the beauty of our environment and reinforces why we must protect our wildlands.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
