Philippine Eagle under threat

Only 400 pairs of the world's largest eagle are left in the wild due to poaching and decimated forest habitats.

    Environmentalists are worried that the Philippine Eagle will soon be extinct.

    The rarest and biggest eagle in the world needs rainforests and large trees to live in, but almost 90 percent of the country’s forests have disappeared.

    Poaching also remains rampant as people in the southern Philippines believe eating eagles will guarantee a longer, healthier life.

    Around 400 pairs of Philippine eagles are left in the wild.
