The Greater Vancouver Zoo began construction of a new bald eagle enclosure on the 39th anniversary of the Aldergrove facility on August 20.

A brilliantly sunny August day graced the groundbreaking ceremony, led by zoo general manager Jamie Dorgan, Leq'a:mel first nation chief Alice Thompson and Township councillor Jordan Bateman.

The Leq'a:mel first nation territory near Harrison Bay is one of the bald eagle's preferred areas for feasting on spawning salmon.
