The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) – Mount Apo Natural Park Protected Area Management Office (DENR-MANP PAMO Cotabato) shared this stunning rare display of aerial courtship of the critically endangered Philippine Eagles, raising the bar in the ongoing efforts to protect and save the raptors, while also continuously conserving the Mt. Apo Natural Park.
MANP Cotabato through its Philippine Eagle Monitoring Team composed of Deputy PASu Shirley P. Uy, Focal Person Arnold Allen S. Chin, Lucky Jay Naquines, Jayson Serrano, and Rufino Iday Jr. conducted a Philippine Eagle Monitoring activity, during which the captivating encounter took place. The eagles engaged in the courtship symbolize not only their readiness for procreation but also the critical role that breeding pairs play in maintaining the population growth and survival of their kind.
