This has to be one of the best places I also went to Davao. It’s because this was the first place I saw the Philippine Eagle for the very first time. Please be forewarned, you won’t see any Philippine Eagle pictures here so might as well head over to this post about Philippine Eagles.
Anyway, we got to learn a lot about the Philippine Eagle and its behavior and habitat. Even if I’m supposedly a bird lover and I’ve read a lot about the Philippine Eagle, it was just so much different seeing the real deal right in front of you.
Apart from just being a conservation center, the place is really beautiful as it has a huge fish pond with humongous fish swimming in it. You can also get a cool henna tattoo or have your picture taken with some pythons. This beautiful conservation center does not only take care of Philippine Eagles but also cater to rescued animals such as the Brahminy kite, Philippine Deer and other species.
What I do enjoy about the place is that it’s huge and has a lot of plants. It really is an environment where one can get pretty close to nature and learn a thing or two about the environment and how we can contribute to saving these National birds.
I do suggest however, calling up the center beforehand so you can get a guide to, well, guide you around.
And I’m going to apologize now but this post is just oozing with camwhores from the DFAT Batch 2011.
Ate Ria, for this post you’re my favorite subject. Riality indeed bites, just not the photographer
