THE CORNELL LAB & THE PHILIPPINE EAGLE FOUNDATION

At the Cornell Lab Media Unit, we partner with regional organizations to support conservation efforts on behalf of some of the most endangered species and habitats around the world.

For "Bird of Prey" we partnered with the Philippine Eagle Foundation throughout the production process. The PEF granted access to their unique rehabilitation facilities and were instrumental in helping us find nesting eagles to film. We have produced a series of videos and publications for the PEF's community outreach and education efforts and continue to support the PEF with access to the natural history footage from the film. 

The Mission of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) is based on the belief that the fate of the Philippine Eagle, the health of the environment, and the quality of  Philippine life are inextricably linked.  The foundation has its roots in a government program launched in the 1970s, with help from the Peace Corps and American aviator Charles Lindberg. Taking leadership of the initiative in 1987, the foundation is entrusted with the management of the species, including supervision of the nation’s only captive breeding program.
