Scientist tracks eagles soaring to incredible heights

Simon Cherriman is passionate about Australian wildlife, and his research focuses on the iconic wedge-tailed eagle. He has been studying the huge birds of prey for a number of years, but over the past twelve months he started a project that fulfilled a boyhood dream: tracking wedge-tailed eagles.

"I always wanted to know where eagles went when I wasn't watching them," he explains.
