On this map are displayed uploaded data of white-tailed eagle observations. It is assumed that centuries ago, before the major river regulations took place, white-tailed eagles used to breed in entire Europe. As a result of the unfavourable effects of the 20th century white-tailed eagle populations continued to diminish. Owing to the successful conservation measures and due to the banning of poisonous agricultural chemicals, today the populations appear to be increasing all around Europe.
