The Philippine Eagle, An Endangered Raptor
As one of the most endangered raptors in the world, the Philippine Eagle is threatened by deforestation and the expansion of agriculture. Much of the forest in lowland countries is owned by logging companies, who are destroying their habitat. They’re also susceptible to poaching, mining, and pollution. Only around 400 breeding pairs remain on this planet. Tim Flach managed to capture this beautiful animal with its spunky hairdo. Hopefully, through increased education and effort to protect this species, we’ll see an incline in their population (Peregrine Fund).
