Rescued Philippine Eagle released in Davao Oriental

Shortly after it was rescued and rehabilitated, a Philippine Eagle named Mal’lambugok was released into the forests of Caraga, Davao Oriental.

According to a Balitanghali report, Mal’lambugok was rescued and rehabilitated by the Philippine Eagle Foundation.

When the conservation group successfully collected enough money to buy a GPS transmitter, they attached it to Mal’lambugok so as to track him, once he was released to the wild. 

His name, Mal'lambugok means eagle in Mandaya.

The Philippine Eagle is among the rarest eagles in the world. It belongs to the list of critically engaged species of the National Union for Conservation of Nature.

According the Philippine Eagle Foundation, there are only about 400 pairs of Philippine Eagle in the wild. — LA, GMA News
