  • The place is fit to handle such magnificent birds of prey... Has big enough space for all the species being nurtured here. And they have good tasting golden pomelo...
  • The protected home of one of the largest eagles in the world - the Philippine Eagle. It's the only place where humans attempt to reverse the trend of the endangered eagle by making this a safe haven for the birds to propagate. You will see here the magnificent eagles in their protected habitat.
  • They're doing an intervention to control the dwindling population of Philippine Eagle species. But in doing so they need to house them in the center. By the time they are released into the wild, it is a new struggle for survival because the raptors need to adjust to their new environment which is free from human intervention that they have been used to.
  • Great place for a tour / educational tour but was a long drive from the city.
  • Not one who likes birds in captivity, this was still attractive if only to see this iconic bird close up. Having seen it in the wild at distance, you have to come to visit this place to be totally overawed and inspired by this solid, majestic bird. Anything which increases an interest in the bird and preserving the habitat on which it depends on is crucial for its survival. It is sad to see birds in cages however as remaining habitat is destroyed, it my be the only contact many will have with this bird. The Philippines in particular is not a country where there is real political resolve to protect the environment and destruction can be easily seen for those who care to look. Nice centre though with pleasant gardens. But the only reason to come here is the magnificent Philippine Eagle - stunning.
