Formerly known as the Monkey-eating Eagle, the Philippine Eagle is large, imperious eagle of the remote forests of The Philippines. Sadly, it is clinging to a meaningful existence only through the assistance of a dedicated team throught the Philippine Eagle Foundation, based in Davao, on the island of Mindinao.

I was fortunate to have a conversation with Jayson Ibanez, Director of Research and Conservation, with the Foundation.

Jayson has an interest in indigenous studies, which has informed his conservation work and he has a significant connection to Australia.  I hope you learn as much about this fabulous raptor as I did.

The Philippine Eagle Foundation has a really good website, and if you want to read a lot of aticles, there are plenty here to dive into - philippineeaglefoundation.org

If you can, consider supporting the efforts of the Foundation to study and protect the Philippine Eagle.

Jayson is on LinkedIn and Twitter @falcon2car

Currently trying to get some eyes and subscribers on The Bird Emergency on YouTube, so I can put a bit more effort into the video side of things, so if you would like more visual content, please subscribe, and I will watch with interest if that's what you want!
