Davao City, considered as the largest city in the world in terms of land area, has a lot to offer, lush greenery, fresh sea and land bounties, pristine beaches, rich culture, hospitable people and the Philippine Eagle.
According to Wiki, The Philippine Eagle, Pithecophaga jefferyi, also known as the great Philippine eagle or monkey-eating eagle, is among the tallest, rarest, largest, and most powerful birds in the world. A bird of prey belonging to the family Accipitridae, it is also known as "Haribon" or "Haring Ibon," which means "Bird King". Its local name is banog. It is endemic to the Philippines and can be found on four major islands: eastern Luzon, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao.
The largest number of eagles reside in Mindanao, with between 82 and 233 breeding pairs, thus the conservation center was set-up here in Davao City. When you’re in Davao City include in your spot list, the Philippine Eagle Center at Malagos, Calinan.
