Craig Webb from the Wildlife & Raptor Refuge of Tasmania has released another Wedge Tailed Eagle. Around 4 years of age and in Craig’s care for 8 months it was great to see this wonderful eagle once again flying free, against the spectacular backdrop of Forestry Tasmania’s Tahune Airwalk.
A few dozen people gathered as Craig unveiled the eagle and after a minute stretching his wings the eagle was returned to the wild to make a new home in the Huon Valley. The Tasmanian Wedge Tailed Eagle is an endangered species and the rehabilitation work of Craig & the Refuge are an essential part of the ongoing survival of the species. Please consider purchasing a 2013 calendar or otherwise donating to the Refuge to assist the Refuge in continuing its vital work.
