Mi’kmaq elder holds the eagle

Eagle Release by Mi’kmaq Elder

"All my life, the eagle's been taking care of me, and that was my opportunity to take care of the eagle."

An eagle nursed back to health at UPEI's Atlantic Veterinary College Wildlife Service was released into the wild by Mi’kmaq elder Junior Peter-Paul recently. Peter-Paul's daughter Melissa first came across the injured bird about a month ago, and along with her father and conservation officers rescued the eagle and transported her to veterinarians and technicians at the AVC for rehabilitation.
