Bird of Prey
Wildlife cinematographer Neil Rettig embarks on what could be the most challenging assignment of his career: to find and film the rarest eagle on the planet. Bird of Prey explores the vanishing world of the Great Philippine Eagle and profiles the courageous heroes who are determined to save it. Fewer than 700 individuals remain today, and the future of these iconic birds —and of an untold number of other species —is tied to the fate of the Philippine’s last fragments of old-growth forest.
