The National Bird of Panama : The Harpy Eagles

Tour Options

The Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja) is the national bird of the Republic of Panam a, and standing three feet tall and up to a seven feet wingspan, it is the strongest bird of prey in the world !
Even though these magnificent birds have no natural predators, they have but disappeared from most of their historical range from Mexico to Argentina; mainly due to habitat loss and direct persecution.
Luckily Panama today has the greatest concentration of harpy eagles in all of Mesoamerica, with more than 200 breeding pairs estimated.

Over time we have learned of about 10 different eagle nests throughout the country, from the Darien to the Panama Canal Watershed, to Bocas del Toro. Through our network of native guides we are monitoring their current status.
It is our belief that rainforest conservation and education efforts need to be complemented with alternatives for the native people of the rainforest, so they can help us protect the Harpy Eagle and their rainforest realm, and still manage to make a living. This can be achieved by promoting sustainable tourism in the areas where Harpy Eagles are found
