There are many factors that affect the survival of raptors. Just a few include poisons, pesticides, power lines, hunting and the removal of eggs and chicks. One of the biggest threats; however, is habitat destruction which is the single biggest threat to this particular pair. Where there is no suitable habitat to hunt, there is clearly no prey. All of these reasons lead the Black Eagle Project team to protect the natural habitat of the Black Eagle.
The Black Eagle Project is currently conserving the Black Eagles in the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden in South Africa by monitoring and recording crucial information on their breeding cycle. They are also educating the public about the Black Eagle and all raptors.
