armchair bushman posted a topic in Latest Conservation news and talkTHE STORY: Siana is a female African Crowned Eagle that was found with two broken wings in May of 2015 close to the world famous Maasai Mara National Reserve. She was rescued thanks to caring staff members from Siana Springs Tented Camp and by members of the African Impact Mara Naboisho Volunteer Project. Siana is currently being taken care of by Simon Thomsett, Shiv Kapila and Sarah Higgins of the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust. Unfortunately, Siana will most likely never fly again and therefore it is pertinent that the Kenya Bird of Prey Trust build her an aviary to ensure that this magnificent eagle is guaranteed a quality of life at the trust headquarters. This is no small task as African Crowned Eagles are one of the largest eagle species in Africa and an aviary for this massive raptor is the size of a small house. African Crowned Eagles are also a species in decline in Kenya with an estimated ~250 breeding pairs remaining. If Siana has an adequate aviary she could be bred in captivity and her offspring then released back into the wild. Our hope is that we will be able to raise US $5500.00 so that together we can build Siana a new home. This aviary would be designed by the trust and would guarantee that Siana is given the highest quality of life. Every single donation counts. Please share this post widely and get the word out. We hope to reach our goal as soon as possible! https://www.crowdrise.com/kenyabirdofpreytrust/fundraiser/richardhatfield
