Why are eagles important to the environment?
Ecology and Conservation
Bald eagles are a very important part of the environment. By eating dead animal matter, they help with nature’s clean-up process. Bald eagles are also hunters, so they keep animal populations strong. They do this by killing weak, old, and slower animals, leaving only the healthiest to survive.

The tamaraw resembles the carabao, only it is smaller and its horns are shorter which grows upward in a “V” form. Its dense hair covering is dark brown to grayish black. The tamaraw, also called the dwarf water buffalo, is the largest native land mammal in the Philippines and it can only be found in Mindoro.
What is the reason why eagles are endangered?
Forty years ago, the bald eagle, our national symbol, was in danger of extinction throughout most of its range. Habitat destruction and degradation, illegal shooting, and the contamination of its food source, due to use of the pesticide DDT, decimated the eagle population.
