The Repository, a one of a kind facility, is operated and managed by the Office of Law Enforcement, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is located at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge northeast of Denver, Colorado. Its purpose is to:
- Receive, inventory, store, and dispose of confiscated wildlife property ensuring 100% accountability,
- Receive, evaluate, store and distribute dead bald and golden eagles, parts, and feathers to Native Americans who are enrolled members of federally recognized tribes throughout the United States,
- Develop and provide educational programs regarding wildlife trade, wildlife laws, endangered species, raptors and the Native American eagle feather program
The Repository plays an important role for Native American.
Where do Bald Eagles go when they die? Hopefully, they end up at the National Eagle Repository, so they can live on in the hands of those who hold them dearest.
