We have the World Center for Birds of Prey here in town, and one of the coolest animals there is the Harpy Eagle. So, when I found out they came from Suriname, I talked to the WCBP people and asked how I could help. They suggested getting the locals to find the nests. When I went into my host-brother’s bedroom, he had a stuffed Harpy Eagle hanging from his ceiling. It was really sad. Later, when I was in the village, the LAST thing I wanted was to suggest they go find eagles. The villagers ate anything that moved.
