Hedcor rescues another Hawk-Eagle

Aboitiz Power unit Hedcor facilitated the turnover of an adult Southern Philippine Hawk-Eagle to the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF), following the rescue of the endangered bird from a crow attack by Bagobo-Tagabawa farmer, Henry Andi.

The eagle was found along the Sibulan River in Davao del Sur and is now under recovery.

The hawk-eagle is still under observation; the food ration is given with vitamins, and though the wound on its left wing still needs medication, the eagle can now stand and eat on its own.

-Giovanni Tampos, PEF biologist

This is the second eagle Hedcor has saved after the successful release of Mabikkerr, a Pinsker’s Hawk-Eagle, back into the wild in 2015 (Read the story).  Hedcor, in cooperation with local organizations and residents, aims to aid in the preservation of Philippine wildlife and biodiversity, just one of the many ways Aboitiz leads communities in creating a BetterWorld.

Hedcor, through its partnership with local government units, conducts activities that help preserve the flora and fauna along the Sibulan River. The AboitizPower subsidiary has engaged in tree-planting and river cleanup drives in its adopted water body, as well as information campaigns that help people understand the value of safeguarding the nation’s ecological balance.
