To ensure the safety of Salagbano aka Sarangani Eagle, the Philippine Eagle Foundation has partnered with Alsons Power, which will fund the logistics, tracking, and protection of Salagbano, as well as the education of the people from surrounding communities so they can help in protecting and conserving the eagles and their habitat. An electronic tracker attached to Salagbano will provide regularly transmit data on the eagle’s movements throughout the protected sanctuary.
