photohunt: twist(ed)

11:53 PM Saturday, April 12, 2008

It is a shame that beauties such as monkey-eating eagles like Pag-asa (first Philippine eagle bred in captivity, top photo) have to stay captive inside twisted cages. But considering the lack of consideration and vigilance of most people, creatures like them are less endangered here.

Animals at the Calauit Island Sanctuary enjoy the freedom of roaming freely, but they have also become prey to butchery by locals who sell their meat as a delicacy. So instead of thriving, their numbers have been decreasing.

So eventhough I ache for these animals who are trapped in zoos, shelters, tanks... I just remind myself that they have a better chance of surviving there.
