History:

Despite being found in an extremely large range of habitats, the harpy eagle’s population has declined considerably in the past few decades. Due to human activities like logging, prospecting, and agricultural expansion, the harpy eagle is suffering from a loss of its natural habitat. Although exact numbers are not known, the harpy eagle is thought to be quickly approaching the “threatened” classification on the animal conservation status spectrum.
