A Philippine Eagle was spotted in the forest of Mt. Apo.
According to a Facebook post of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF), the eagle was discovered by forest guards in the area. The eagle is said to be only a year old.
The Philippine Eagle is listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with only 400 pairs left in the wild.
According to the PEF, the decline of the Philippine Eagle was mainly caused by deforestation and shooting.
Based on the 2018 report of the PEF, there were only eight young eagles monitored in Mindanao from 2017 to 2018.--AAC
