RESCUE, REHABILITATION & RELEASE

We rescue captured and injured Philippine eagles from the wild.

We take these eagles to the Philippine Eagle Center for medical attention and rehabilitation.

RESCUING PHILIPPINE EAGLES

Once an eagle sighting is verified, we deploy a team of veterinarians and biologists to retrieve the captured eagle. We conduct a quick check-up at the site before the eagle is brought to the PEC for further check-up, a series of lab tests, and evaluation.

Rescued eagles undergo rehabilitation at the PEC. We then assess their overall condition if they are healthy and fit enough to be released back to the wild. 

PHILIPPINE EAGLE RELEASES

We partner with the communities and the Local Government Units where the eagles are rescued to ensure its protection when it's released back to the forest. We also conduct educational campaigns on the ecological importance of our National Bird and how communities can benefit in conserving the eagle and its forest habitat.

Rescued eagles fit for release are sent back to the wild with a backpack GPS tracker to help us monitor their movements.
