Owner description: This site is working to preserve the endangered Philippine eagle.
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The Philippine Eagle is the world's second largest bird and a seriously impressive creature, everything needs to be done to save this species from extinction. I sense this centre is trying hard and is definitely worth a visit as everyone should see these birds and learn about how to protect them. Here one can get up reasonably close to the birds and at least admire their magnificence.
However, the centre looks tired and shoddy, most of the cages are completely inadequate for the selection of birds and if they must be kept captive then at least allow them freedom to flap their wings more than a couple of times.
The plight of these eagles demonstrates what happens when palm oil and logging take priority and politicians turn a blind eye and line their pockets. The Philippines can be hugely proud of these birds but much more needs to be done to preserve their habitat.

Fascinating, wild, and I really had an intense time here. I made a minor mistake by coming alone. Well, here's a tip, tours and shows have schedules, so better know when to go to fully enjoy the place. I went around the whole forest alone. And I fear there might also be other eagles (from the wild) who visits this area. When you hear flapping and wind sheer, don't look up. Better not to see them. LOL

Those monkey-eating eagles are the biggest birds I've ever seen! Amazing! We couldn't see much of the owls though, because they're hiding during the day.
