The Tale of a Bonelli's Eagle

  • by KUSKOR
  • June 15, 2015

This video tells the story of a poisoned Bonelli's Eagle that was rehabilitated in North Cyprus by a group of local conservationists who have been tracking the status of the species in their country. 

The film also discusses the grave problems faced by the Bonelli's Eagle and other birds of prey as poisoning and illegal hunting remain poorly controlled, despite the complete eradication of three large raptor species over the last 50 years.

As our last remaining large breeding raptor, the Bonelli's Eagle is the flagship species for bird conservation in North Cyprus. We wish to use this as an example to raise awareness amongst Turkish Cypriots of these problems and to help turn the tide against the continuing decline of the Island's birds by supporting Turkish Cypriot environmental NGOs.

The Birds-of-Paradise Project reveals the astounding beauty of 39 of the most exquisitely specialized animals on earth. After 8 years and 18 expeditions to New Guinea, Australia, and nearby islands, Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photojournalist Tim Laman succeeded in capturing images of all 39 species in the bird-of-paradise family for the first time ever. This trailer gives a sense of their monumental undertaking and the spectacular footage that resulted. Filmed by Tim Laman, Ed Scholes, and Eric Liner.

Bird Quotes

In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.

Robert Lynd

Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?

David Attenborough

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Maya Angelou

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
