PAL adopts Philippine Eagle Sinag
(The Philippine Star) - January 23, 2016 - 9:00am

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has sealed its adoption of the latest eaglet bred in captivity at the Philippine Eagle Center in Barangay Malagos, Calinan district here.

PAL signed an agreement with the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) for the adoption of Philippine Eagle Sinag at the carrier’s corporate office in Pasay City on Friday.

PEF chairman Carlos Dominguez III thanked the carrier for helping the foundation promote Sinag’s survival and ensure protection of its natural habitat.

The adoption covers a period of six years aimed at strengthening efforts to nurture the eaglet’s growth.

The carrier aims to donate one million Mabuhay Miles to support PEF in spreading more awareness to help stem the dwindling population of the Philippine Eagle.

“The flag carrier will do its share to sustain the growth of our adopted eaglet and ensure that it will someday spread its wings and soar high,” Jaime Bautista, PAL president and chief operating officer, said.

“PAL vows to carry out its role as an adoptive parent so that baby eagle Sinag will eventually become an aviator with dignity and strength – traits that are inherent in every PAL flight,” he added.

Bautista said several passengers have donated their unused flight miles to the “Miles for a Mission project,” which aims to preserve the Philippine Eagle and protect the environment.
