The national emblem of the Philippines, the Philippine Eagle is considered the largest of the extant eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface. Without other predators, the eagles are the dominant hunter in the Philippine forests. And, like most eagles, is monogamous. Once paired, a couple remains together for the rest of their lives. They are threatened primarily by deforestation through logging and expanding agriculture. Mining, pollution, exposure to pesticides that affect breeding, and poaching are also major threats. Now critically endangered, killing a Philippine eagle is punishable under Philippine law by 12 years in prison and heavy fines. There are less than 250 Philippine Eagles remaining in the forests.
