A Record-Setting View Of Dubai, As Seen From The Wings Of An Eagle

Mar 23, 2015
Freedom Conservation is a group dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of the conservation of birds of prey. There are reserves all over that are dedicated to protecting the lives of these creatures, but sometimes unique measures need to be taken in order to catch people's attention.

As a means of sharing information about eagle conservation, Freedom Conservation strapped a camera to an eagle named Darshan to get a real bird's-eye aerial view of Dubai. Darshan now holds the world record for the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure, taking off from his perch atop Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
