The National Eagle Repository in Colorado

The PBMS is a good example of how wildlife carcasses can be used to further scientific understanding of the environmental threats posed by pollution.   

However, bird remains are also used for other purposes around the world.

The BBC have published a fascinating article about what happens to the remains of many eagles found dead in the USA. It features the work of the National Eagle Repository in Colorado and the US national eagle programme. The article can be found here
