#103 Philippine Eagle Center

Philippine Eagle Center

The Philippine Eagle Center (PEC), located in Malagos village, is about an hour drive from Davao City in Mindanao, southern Philippines, and can be reached either by private or public transport.

The center is home to 32 Philippine eagles, 16 of which are captive-bred. It also houses 10 other species of birds, four species of mammals and two species of reptiles. The center is tasked to protect the rare Philippine eagle and provides a sanctuary to Philippine eagles that were illegally captured.

The center used to be primarily a breeding and conservation facility, but has opened its doors to the viewing public for educational purposes. Simulating a tropical rain forest environment, the center offers the visitor a glimpse into the Philippines’s forest ecosystem. Although the exhibits are used primarily to help educate the Filipino people on conservation, the facility is also considered a major tourist attraction in Davao City with its beautiful gardens and scenery.

Mabuhay ang Philippine Eagle Center!
