The Philippine Eagle is one of the most important icons of the country. Its soaring figure is a source of pride for the Filipinos as the endemic species with its imposing 7-foot wingspan is one of the world’s most powerful birds of prey.
Enchanted Kingdom is committed to the cause of protecting the Philippine Eagle and the country’s biodiversity. Last October 2015, through the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF), EK has adopted and funded the care and breeding of a 10-year-old bird under the name “Enchanting Kagitingan”. The Philippines’ premiere theme park destination believes that nurturing the environment will help ensure that the future generations will still be able to enjoy the rich biodiversity of the country.
