Bird’s eye view: see London from the back of an eagle

Eagle Eye View From City Hall To Celebrate The 50 year anniversary of The IUCN's Red List 1

So you’ve seen London from the top of the Shard? BIG WOW. Have you seen it through the actual eyes of an eagle? I think not. 

The FREEDOM foundation let a white-tailed eagle fly around London a few weeks back, and now they’ve released footage filmed from a Sony AZ1VR camera strapped to its back. The clips show the bird’s descent from St Paul’s Cathedral, City Hall & Tower Bridge, and the Orbit.

The short films were shot to promote ‘HERE TODAY…’, a new exhibition celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of The IUCN Red List of Threatened and Endangered Species. Being held at the Old Sorting Office from November 25 until December 17, the art show explores the pressure humans are putting on the planet the consequent extinction crisis. It will feature art work from George Condo, Tracey Emin, Andy Warhol, Gavin Turk and Peter Blake.
