Model Eagles

12 November 2020

Here at the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project we have many ways of communicating the beauty and impressive features of the golden eagle. We have 2D wooden cut-outs showing the wingspan up 2.2 meters, we have footage from the wild showing project eagles soaring high and we also invite falconers and their eagles to schools and events. These are all great but we wondered if there was a way allow people to get up close and personal. Something to touch and hold in order to really get an idea of the size, form and weight of a golden eagle. A 3D model was the answer; a chick roughly the age when we would collect from the eyrie and a juvenile roughly the age of being released from our aviaries and in the wild for a few weeks.
