Perched high atop a cliff sits a massive bird of prey. It is a
magnificent creature with golden brown wings and a bright yellow
beak and talons. It is the master of its ecological domain
and the apex predator. This is the White-tailed Sea-eagle, a
dying breed of bird which is clinging to an increasingly tenuous
string of existence in a rapidly changing and hostile world.
In “White Tailed Sea-Eagle,” we document this species’ increasingly
futile struggle for survival and learn about its relationship
with its ecology. We explore why the most insignificant changes
to the environment leaves this bird vulnerable and fragile despite
its fearsome appearance.
