Eagle Kabayan’s death a sign to do more - Noli

Davao City (13 January) -- Vice president Noli “Kabayan” De Castro is still willing to sponsor the nurturing of another Philippine eagle despite the death of his adopted eagle “Kabayan” which met a fatal accident last Saturday, January 8, at the Philippine Eagle Foundation release site in Mount Apo, Davao.

“I am sorry that this incident occurred to the young Eagle Kabayan. Much has been done to achieve a breakthrough with regard to the conservation of Philippine Eagles. But Eagle Kabayan’s death should not be seen as a setback to the PEF’s efforts in preserving endangered species, this should urge more environmentalists to participate in this kind of endeavor. As for me, I am more than eager to sponsor another eagle and to finally see more Philippine Eagles in the wild and not be endangered anymore,” de Castro said in a statement.

De Castro being a known environmentalist adopted Eagle Kabayan more than two years ago and sponsored all the eagle’s food and maintenance expenses up to the time of its release.

The vice president underlined the contribution made by his adopted eagle in terms of the experimental release project of the PEF.

He pointed out that there are many Philippine eagles in captivity under PEF’s care that have yet to be released into the wilds in order for them to finally adapt to their natural environment.

He urged the PEF to use what they have learned from the Eagle Kabayan in their future experimental projects.

Since they have seen and observed the ways of a captive-bred Philippine Eagle like Kabayan, PEF is now more equipped and capable to nurture and protect endangered species in their experimental releases. They should use their experience with Eagle Kabayan as guide. (Phil. Eagle Foundation) [top]
