They Fixed A Camera To An Eagle's Back. Once He Takes Off, His View Of Paris Is Breathtaking
This eagle's flight over Paris provides beautiful footage, but the purpose is not purely aesthetic. The video is a production of the Freedom Project, which works towards eagle conservation. The project is a collaborative effort led by Les Ailes de la Liberté, a program designed to integrate adult eagles born in captivity into the wild, and SOS (Save Our Species), a global partnership whose goal is to protect species and their habitats. The aim of the project is to increase awareness of the precarious situation that various eagle species currently face as endangered or declining. The project also has a practical plan for action: they plan to increase breeding in captivity and then teach adult eagles the skills to live in the wild.
