Members of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) released the “Sarangani Eagle Salagbanog” back into the wild in the general area on Monday, June 13, 2022, in Maitum Sarangani, where he was rescued late last year and discovered with pellet gun wounds.
With the participation of Alisons Power Group’s Sarangani Energy Corporation which supported the rescued eagle, they commit to preserving and protecting the Mt. Busa Key Biodiversity Area in Sarangani Province, home to a significant number of Philippine Eagle sub-population.
An electronic tracker will allow the PEF and Alisons Power to follow and systematically check the progress of the Eagle through the next two years.
