California and Nevada Golden Eagle Working Group

The Golden Eagle Working Group (GEWG) was established in 2011 and will be led on a rotational basis by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Migratory Bird Program, California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). The purpose of the GEWG will be to provide a forum for state and federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, researchers, landowners, and other interested parties to discuss and coordinate activities surrounding Golden Eagle inventory, monitoring, research, and conservation efforts in California and Nevada.

Access the Golden Eagle Online Coordination Tool. The online coordination tool was developed by the Mojave Desert Ecosystem Program to help coordinate survey, monitoring, and research efforts among the entities conducting golden eagle activities in California and Nevada. The tool includes a user friendly mapping component that tracks information on project location, time frame, and contact information. This tool does not house eagle observation data. It only houses project location data and contact information.  Those wishing to use this tool will need to request access, at which point they will be given a username and password to access the site. Information added to this site has to be reviewed by agency staff (CDFW, FWS and NDOW) prior to being viewed by users in the system. Information can be labeled as sensitive by agency staff, and in this case would not be viewable to all users.
