Where they live

In summer, Steller's Sea-eagles reside on the Kamchatka and Sakhalin (Russia) for breeding. In winter, they stay on the Korean peninsula and in Japan.

What they eat

The Steller's Sea-eagle loves big fish...salmon please! When they're really hungry they eat sea lion cubs and arctic foxes.

What they are like

In summer, the Steller's Sea-eagle cares for children in the nest. They are handymen because they only build one nest, repair it over and over again so it can be used for many, many years.

Magical hunter scoops up big fish in one hit!
Large, razor-sharp talons. Curved beak perfect for chomping juicy meat. Powerful-looking Steller's Sea-eagle hunts for prizes of big fish, like salmon. He also enjoys a chomp on water fowl, sea lion cubs, and arctic foxes too. But even the powerful Steller's Sea-eagle is no match for Eco doom in the wild kingdom. Only 5,000 of these amazing hunters are left, the woods for nests and fish for food are disappearing!

Eating Yezo deer meat is dangerous?!
In addition, the 1990s in Hokkaido saw hundreds of Steller's Sea-eagles dying from lead poisoning! The Steller's Sea-eagles often eat dead animal bodies during the winter season. They ate Yezo deer that was shot with lead bullets. The Yezo deer meat was poison! In 2001, lead bullets became illegal in Hokkaido but Steller's Sea-eagles are still getting lead poisoning. Bad hunters don't hunt by the rules.
