Harpy Eagle

The harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) is a neotropical species of eagle. It is also called the American harpy eagle to distinguish it from the Papuan eagle, which is sometimes known as the New Guinea harpy eagle or Papuan harpy eagle. It is the largest and most powerful raptor found throughout its range, and among the largest still existing species of eagles in the world. It usually inhabits tropical lowland rainforests in the upper (emergent) canopy layer. Destruction of its natural habitat has caused it to vanish from many parts of its former range, and it is nearly extirpated from much of Central America.

Rangers Voice

"The job of a forest ranger consists of protecting forests, caring for the species that live there, and learning to interpret the small changes in nature that are imperceptible to many– the hatching of an insect, the croaking of a frog or the flapping of a hummingbird."
