ARKive – Philippine eagle – Critically Endangered

Via Scoop.itEarth Island Institute Philippines

Philippine eagle – Critically Endangered A variety of factors have caused the precipitous decline of the Philippine eagle, the largest eagle in the world. Although protected by law, this majestic bird faces pressure from hunting and great areas of its forest habitat have been cleared for commercial development and for shifting cultivation. An accumulation of pesticides in the environment may also be responsible for a reduction in the Philippine eagle’s reproductive rate.
