The Harpy Eagle or American Harpy Eagle is a powerful raptor that lives across Central and South America where it lives in the upper canopy layer of tropical rainforests.
Unfortunately the Harpy Eagle is threatened due to habitat loss and hunting as it was seen as a threat to life stock and humans because of its large size.
The National Institute of Amazonian Research in Brazil is currently conducting research at 45 known nesting locations that are being monitored by volunteers.
