OmniPay Adopts Philippine Eagle Gavra Maslog


A young rescued female Philippine eagle gets a second chance in life at the Philippine Eagle Center (PEC). The PEF rescue team brought the eagle to the PEC underweight, slightly dehydrated, and bruised. Many of her wing and tail feathers are also either missing, apparently forcibly removed, or broken. The ends of the talons on her left foot are also cut or chipped off. After months of rehabilitation at the PEC, she has finally fully recovered and is now bright, alert, and responsive. However, her feathers have yet to fully grow back and her talons are still incomplete. These will compromise her flight and hunting abilities in the wild which will be a huge risk to her survival. Furthermore, she has gotten used to the presence of humans which makes her susceptible to approaching communities around the forest if she is released. This will endanger her of being captured or shot. As such, the eagle must remain in captivity for her safety and so she can have a better chance at breeding. OmniPay, Inc., a Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP)-approved entity and regulated as a Non-Bank Financial Institution (NBFI), adopts this eagle by funding her upkeep at the PEC for the next five years. The company commits to give an annual support in the amount of Php 200,000 to the PEF to provide the eagle’s food, enclosure maintenance, keeper care, and veterinary care every year.g rescued female Philippine eagle gets a second chance in life at the Philippine Eagle Center (PEC).
