This was the third annual Nest Fest for the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation. The organization continues to grow, foundation president Carl Way told the group in his remarks, which blurred the distinction between a social gala and a board meeting. Moving forward, the goal is to build on their success, and expand outside of Marco Island, he said, seeking additional support both in Collier County and at the state level. The Eagle Foundation is working with national and even international groups as well, including the American Bald Eagle Foundation, based in Pigeon Forge, Tenessee where the pigeons presumably provide a good food source for any local eagles and Hancock Wildlife in British Columbia and the state of Washington.
