For all Eagle Lovers Aug 18, 2008
They say, if you haven't been to the eagle center, you haven't been to the city of Davao :)

The Center is home to 32 Philippine Eagles, 16 of which are captive-bred. It also houses 10 other species of birds, 4 species of mammals and 2 species of reptiles. Simulating a tropical rain forest environment, the Center offers the visitor a glimpse into the country’s forest ecosystem.

We traveled for 45 minutes from downtown Davao to reach the center. Entrance fee for adults was only 50 pesos.

I had been to the center many times already but as always, i am always in AWE of these monkey-eating eagles which are mostly found in Mindanao.

How to get there

The Philippine Eagle Center (PEC) is about an hour drive from the city and can be reached either by private or public transport. Buses going to Calinan depart every 15 minutes from the Annil Terminal located at corner Quirino and San Pedro Extension. Bus fare is at P30. From Calinan, take a pedicab going to the PEC. The ride is about 10 minutes and will cost you P6. Before entering the PEC premises, the Davao City Water District will collect an entrance fee of P5 for adults and P3 for kids. PEC entrance costs P50 for adults and P30 for youth, 18 years old and below. Tour guiding and the use of kiosks are free of charge.

So, when you are in Davao - make sure you visit the Eagle Center AND Never forget to say Hi to Dakila - my favorite eagle - so funny and so playful :)

By the way, Davao City is the largest city of the country and also known as the durian capital of the Philippines. It's located in the southern part of the country - an hour away from Manila by plane.

(Note: i just added some photos as update - thanks to those who had read teh review before. Hope this helps.)

Last May (2008)there was a lady outside Center the with a couple of snakes that she lets to anyone who likes to hold and have a photo of self with snake coiled around the shoulder (they are heavy, not to mention slimy) for a donation. The snakes are beautiful but the lady taking care of it is too. When she puts the snake around your shoulder, you can almost kiss her.
