2017 Speaker Schedule

  • Thursday, April 20

    Cordi and Joe Atkinson have rehabilitated and trained Golden Eagles for release back into the wild for more than 30 years. Their eagles have appeared on many nature programs and films, most recently The Sagebrush Sea, produced by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and shown on PBS.

    In 2015 they were given the unprecedented opportunity in the Philippines to work on another project with Cornell Lab of Ornithology, training two Philippine Eagles to be used for some very specific shots in an upcoming documentary about this critically endangered eagle.

    Cordi is an internationally published photographer and through her lens you will have a very rare opportunity to see this powerful and exotic bird. With only about 300 of these magnificent eagles left on the planet their hope is to bring awareness to its plight and the efforts being made to prevent its extinction. Cordi became particularly interested in the Forest Protection and Management Program implemented by the Philippine Eagle Foundation, which targets indigenous tribes to become ‘forest watchers’ in return for a service provided to their village. This unique program recognizes that the well-being of the eagles, the local communities and their forest environment are inextricably linked and Cordi has become dedicated to raising awareness and support for the establishment of more of these groups that are key to the protection and survival of the remaining forest and eagles.
