Australia Global Alumni supports awareness campaign to save Philippine Eagle

Australia Global Alumni, in a bid to raise awareness of the current situation of the Philippine Eagle, collaborated with the Philippine Eagle Foundation and SM Supermalls for the exclusive screening of Bird of Prey, a documentary that follows a Philippine Eagle family in the wild and how they raise their young.

Over 100 guests gathered to support the charity screening of the film, which was held last 3 March 2020 at the SM Aura Premier. The proceeds of the event will benefit the Indigenous Forest Guards at Mt Apo who take care of the eagles and their habitat on the nation’s behalf.

Australian alumnus Jayson Ibanez, who heads the Research and Conservation at the Philippine Eagle Foundation in Davao, pioneered research on eagle home range, survival and habitat use through radio, satellite and GPS/GSM telemetry in the Philippines.
