Sanctuary/Signs

 A bird sanctuary with special focus on conservation, research, protection and public education in the preservation of the Philippine eagle and its habitat.  

The Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) is a giant forest raptor endemic to the Philippines---considered one of the largest and most powerful eagles in the world.  Sadly, it is also one of the rarest and among the most critical endangered species.

Wow - that's quite an impressive looking eagle! Never heard of the Philippine Eagle. We have the bald eagle, golden eagle here in America.
