„After you left the Agta area, my schedule continued according to plan for some days. On returning to Manila, I began working on wildlife conservation activities -- a meeting of the Philippine Wildlife Conservation Foundation, a check into the present condition of the Tamaraw in Mindoro, and a trip with Jesse Alvarez to Mindanao to talk to a meeting of loggers in regard to protection of the Monkey Eating Eagle. After the meeting, in Davao, we drove several hours northwest into an isolated and heavily-jungled mountainous area where, after antoher hour on foot, we located two eagles near a previously located nest.
