Our current project shines a light on the wonderful, yet alarmingly threatened birds of the Philippines. In January 2011, three of us flew into Manila and then to Mt. Kitanglad on Mindanao to see wild nesting Philippine Eagles and other endemic birds. These great birds are the national symbols of the Philippines and are tied for the biggest eagle in the world with the Harpy Eagle of South America. They are also amongst the rarest. In addition, they are the coolest most spectacular bird in the world, in our judgement!
Since our great trip that we chronicle in The Jeep, we have partnered with the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) to create limited benefit fine art prints to raise money for research and public outreach/education about the eagle and it’s plight and the need for conservation of habitat where it still survives.
The Palawan Peacock-Pheasant is found in one place in the world, the humid forests of Palawan Island in the southern part of the Philippine archipelago. Like the eagle, it’s habitat is critically endangered. And like the eagle, the pheasant is magic in its beauty, both in life and in this print.
Here are the prints! Each piece is signed and numbered in a limited release of 200. Visit the JPW Store
