Have you ever had the privilege to look in awe just once in your life at a wild Fish Eagle in Lake Baringo catch a catfish at blistering speed? Were you close enough to hear the sound of its wings shredding the air like the sound of jet flying by? Did your kids see it? I hope so because mine probably won't since there are only a dozen or so left in the area.
In case they are already gone by the time you make it there, see the link beside to see what it was like.
If you want your kids to feel the power and see the grace of this wonderful bird in the wild, please consider helping not only the bird, not only the wildlife in general in Kenya but also the locals who depends on this bird to feed their own families as tourism keeps the regional economy healthy. A new hotel around Lake Baringo has started collecting some local species including the majestic Fish Eagle to keep them in cages to show the tourists. KWS(Kenyan Wildlife Services) allegedly knows about this and has sanctioned a permit for caging these wild birds.
Have you ever seen a Fish Eagle in a cage? Have you ever heard a wild Fish Eagle cry from a cage to another Fish Eagle sitting free in a tree next to it? Is this what you want your kids to see in the future? If not, please sign and try to make a difference.
Your support is appreciate. The Fish Eagle, the local community, you and your kids will all benefit from this action.
