Why Philippine Eagle Centre is special ?

The Center is home to 36 Philippine Eagles, 18 of which are captive-bred. It also houses 10 other species of birds, 4 species of mammals and 2 species of reptiles. Simulating a tropical rain forest environment, the Center offers the visitor a glimpse into the country’s forest ecosystem. Although the exhibits are used primarily to help educate the Filipino people on conservation, the facility is also considered a major tourist attraction in Davao City.

Special Education Program

The Philippine Eagle Center offers educational programs for visitors such as:

Keeper Talk

This activity is offered at a specific time. The bird’s keeper or caretaker will talk about the bird’s biology, characteristics, interesting facts and life at the Center. This activity gives the visitors an opportunity to interact with the keeper and its ward. It also helps the visitors have a deeper understanding of the bird’s life cycle and environment.

Falconry.

This activity is a guarantee that visitors will never forget their trip at the Center. This time, the guests will not see the birds in their enclosures but on the air. Keepers will allow their wards to take flight to delight and impart knowledge to the viewers.

Open Classroom Project.

This is a fun way of knowing the eagles and learning about life science. With games and enjoyable activities, students will definitely take pleasure in learning. Modules and themes are specifically designed to suit the needs and interests of Pre-school, Kindergarten, Elementary and Highschool students.

How to get to Philippine Eagle Centre?

Tourists who are coming in from Manila can take a domestic flight directly to Davao City. There are daily flights from Manila to Davao, served by either Cebu Pacific Air or Philippine Airlines.

From Davao City, tourists can visit the Philippine Eagle Center (which is a 45-minute drive from the city) by taking a bus or by driving there using a private car.

Buses are available at the Annil Terminal located at Quirino and San Pedro Extension in Bankerohan. Upon arriving at the terminal, take a bus ride to Calinan. Once you reach Calinan, pedicabs (bikes connected to a passenger sidecar) are available to take you to the Philippine Eagle Center.

Taking a jeepney ride to Calinan is also an option. Several jeepneys going to Calinan are available at the Agdao Market and Bankerohan Market. You can also take your chances and ride a jeepney directly from San Pedro Street in Davao.

If you are unable to drive there with a private car or a rental, you can always get a taxi ride going to the center. The usual roundtrip fixed price asked by the taxi drivers is Php 1,500. The price can be negotiated, and you should also inform the driver upfront how long you are planning to stay inside.

Have a pic with the philippine eagle. So what is the national bird of the phils? Is it maya or the philippine eagle?

Don't forget to bring insect repellent. A lot of bugs are waiting to take a bite off you inside the park so better bring one. Park entrance is PHP150.00

Fascinating, wild, and I really had an intense time here. I made a minor mistake by coming alone. Well, here's a tip, tours and shows have schedules, so better know when to go to fully enjoy the place. I went around the whole forest alone. And I fear there might also be other eagles (from the wild) who visits this area. When you hear flapping and wind sheer, don't look up. Better not to see them. LOL

Those monkey-eating eagles are the biggest birds I've ever seen! Amazing! We couldn't see much of the owls though, because they're hiding during the day.
