This past week, SIB featured “Bird of Prey,” the multi award-winning feature-length (1 hr 30 minutes) documentary from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, as our May Movie Matinee. If you haven’t seen it, we encourage you to take time to watch this incredible story on YouTube (link below). You won’t be disappointed! The film includes footage taken in the late 70’s & early 80’s and then an update with the same scientists and videographers.
The film weaves a remarkable story of the world’s rarest eagle species and the heroic individuals working tirelessly to save it. Since its release in 2018, Bird of Prey, has screened to countless audiences around the world and throughout the Philippines where the film has become an invaluable tool for raising awareness and support for conservation of the critically endangered Philippine Eagle.
