In Lanao del Sur, a Philippine Eagle was rescued.

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — The Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Zamboanga Peninsula (DENR-9) has given over an injured Philippine Eagle to the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) in Davao City for medical treatment through its Regional Wildlife Rescue Center (RWRC).

Dr. Anita Chua, an RWRC resident veterinarian, stated in a statement Wednesday that they opted to send over the Philippine Eagle, “Bangsa Bae,” because the PEF has the facility and resources to complete the necessary extra medical procedures.

“Because the bacterial infection is already extensive and potentially lethal,” Chua added, “Bangsa Bae requires a rapid surgical procedure on its wounded right-wing.”

Bangsa Bae was rescued on February 9 in Barangay Marogong East, Marogong, by personnel from the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao’s Community Environment and Natural Resources and Energy Office (BARMM-CENREO) in Lanao del Sur, supported by the RWRC.

Following the successful rescue, the BARMM-CENREO-Malabang, in collaboration with the PEF, handed over Bangsa Bae to the DENR-9’s RWRC, which is the closest facility in the vicinity capable of providing rapid medical aid and emergency care.

Meanwhile, Datu Tungko Saikol, Executive Director of DENR – 9, praised the coordination between the various authorities and institutions in the eagle’s rescue.

“Our [animal] rescue center is prepared to assist in providing assistance, and we will continue to improve and upgrade our operations and infrastructure,” Saikol said.

Through a Memorandum of Agreement, DENR-9, Department of Agriculture-9, and the provincial government of Zamboanga del Sur jointly run the RWRC.

The Philippine Eagle is the country’s national bird and is classified as critically endangered.

In the municipality of Godod, Zamboanga del Norte, on January 10, the DENR-9 released a rescued and rehabilitated Philippine Eagle named Godod back into the wild.

The Philippine Eagle has been spotted and bred in Baliguian, Godod, and Siocon municipalities in Zamboanga del Norte, Midsalip in Zamboanga del Sur, and Pasonanca Natural Park in Zamboanga City, according to the DENR-9.
