The Hattiesburg Zoo’s newest tenant is the featured attraction in its golden eagle exhibit, the result of a partnership formed with University of Southern Mississippi alumni, students and friends.
An effort to bring a golden eagle to Hattiesburg was initiated by the Southern Miss Alumni Association more than two years ago and supported by the Student Government Association and USM Foundation. Together, the groups contributed $70,000 to fund the construction of a habitat at the Zoo for the golden eagle.
“The partnership between the Hattiesburg Zoo and the Alumni Association to bring a golden eagle to Hattiesburg is a winning combination,” said Rick Taylor, executive director of the Hattiesburg Convention Commission which oversees the management of the Zoo. “These powerful raptors exemplify the spirit of Southern Miss and Hattiesburg as we each seek to attain great heights in building a better quality of life for students and residents.”
