We bring back rescued Philippine eagles back to the Philippine Eagle Center for a thorough check-up and rehabilitation.
RESCUING PHILIPPINE EAGLES
Once an eagle sighting is verified, we deploy a team which consists of a veterinarian, and biologists to rescue and retrieve the captured eagle. We conduct a quick check-up on the field, before the eagle is brought back to the PEC for a thorough check-up 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 once it's released back to its forest home. Educational campaigns highlighting the importance of our National Bird and how to best protect it and its habitat are also held, attended by the local residents and leaders near eagle territories.
Rescued eagles fit for release are sent back to the wild with a GPS tracker on their back to help us monitor their movements.
