Eagles are an iconic birds of prey that represent power. Their ways of life are very diverse and often speak to the imagination. The Golden Eagle is a majestic large eagle that can be found all over the world and it's an amazing experience to see one up-close! Unfortunately, since they are at the top of the food chain, they are very vulnerable to organic pollution and every year thousands are killed through poisoning and other human interactions. Even today, a lot of eagles are illegally culled through this horrific poaching method.
