Wedge-tailed Eagle flight

Wedge-tailed Eagle

The ‘wedgie’, soaring up to 2km high on thermal air currents, is one of the most impressive sights in the Australian sky, and at Healesville Sanctuary you have a chance to see these magnificent birds at close range.

Wedge-tailed eagles are classed as ‘least concern’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (on the IUCN ‘red list’). The Tasmanian subspecies (Aquila audax fleayi) is listed as endangered by the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
