(Manila, PHL) - An endangered Philippine eagle, one of only a few hundred left in the world, has been shot dead, a conservation group that had previously rescued the bird said Friday.

The two-year-old female raptor was found last month with a bullet embedded in its carcass in a forest in the southern island of Mindanao, according to Dennis Salvador, head of the Philippine Eagle Foundation.

Villagers who found the carcass -- which had been tagged with a radio transmitter by the foundation -- turned it over to Salvador's group this week, he told AFP.

The bird of prey, also popularly known as "monkey-eating eagle", is a one-metre (3.3-foot) raptor found only in the Philippines and whose numbers have declined due to hunting and deforestation.

"Even with all our hard work, if there is just one guy with a gun who decides to shoot the bird, he can undo everything," Salvador said.

He warned that the species, one of the world's largest and most powerful eagles, could become extinct within 20 years unless stronger measures are taken to protect the eagle and its habitat.

A farmer had captured the eagle in May 2010 when it tried to prey on his puppy.

He handed the bruised bird over to the foundation, which nursed it back to health and released it back into the wild tagged with the transmitter, Salvador said.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature lists the animal as "critically endangered" and estimates that there may be only 670 birds left.

The Philippine Eagle Foundation has released six eagles -- either bred in captivity or rehabilitated after injuries -- but four of them have since died, at least three of after being shot.

The eagle is the country's national bird and harming or capturing it is against the law, but people still hunt the creature for food or sport, Salvador said.

Philippine Eagle Week 2011
Posted on June 8, 2011 by Diana

This week, June 4-June12, is the 13th annual Eagle Week in the Philippines. This year, the great Philippine Eagle is being celebrated. The great Philippine Eagle is one of the strongest birds on the planet and the largest. In fact, the great Philippine Eagle can be almost 4 feet long! Its no wonder that its other name is the Monkey-eating Eagle. This name came from the belief that these eagles ate monkeys, however they actually prey on Philippine flying lemurs, Asian Pam Civets, small mammals, reptiles and even other birds of prey. Locally the bird is called Banog.



As of July 4, 1995 the great Philippine Eagle was declared as the national bird of the Philippines by President President Fidel V. Ramos. Its declaration as the national bird of the Philippines helped to protect the survival of its species because along with being one of the fiercest birds on the planet, its also one of the most endangered. In fact, in 2010 the species was declared as critically endangered, mostly because of deforestation, and killing any of these birds today is illegal in the Philippines.

To learn more about this species, go here.

The celebration includes the Green Mob parade, SAY Agila dance contest, Agkaya concert, tree planting and story telling to bring awareness to this special bird. This year, the Philippine Eagle Week was extended two extra days to include the Philippine’s Independence Day.

If you’d like more information on the celebration, go here.
