Eagle With Camera Captures Amazing Footage of London [VIDEO]
I do not think I'll ever tire of the trend of attaching cameras to animals and simply letting them do what they do.
In this case it's an eagle flying over London. The white-tailed eagle, which has been critically endangered for over 50 years, was released from the top of the Golden Gallery of St Paul’s Cathedral.
But it's not just cool video. There's SCIENCE involved too:
It is hoped the HDR-AZ1 Action Cam Mini mounted on the animal’s backs will allow researchers to accurately document their flight and prosperity as they are re-introduced into the wild.
The project also hopes to help people, who feel disconnected from nature whilst living in urban environments, and forget the impact their lives can have on the world outside.
FREEDOM will use the footage to study the behaviour of the eagles to understand what needs to be done to prepare the birds ahead the full re-introduction program.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view:
