Joe and Cordi Atkinson have been married for 43 years and have a ranch in Eastern Oregon where we live with a myriad of horses, dogs, cats, and birds. They are both Master Falconers and for 20+ years have used falconry techniques to prepare young golden eagles that have found themselves in wildlife rehabilitation centers, for return to life in the wild. They also have three non-releasable golden eagles that have been filmed by countless production companies for programs aired on PBS (most recently The Sagebrush Sea), BBC, Nature, National Geographic, Nat Geo TV, The Smithsonian Channel, Animal Planet and Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Their work with golden eagles has taken us across the globe to destinations such as the UK, Czech Republic, and United Arab Emirates. In 2015 they were commissioned by Cornell Lab of Ornithology to go to the Philippines and train the rarest eagle in the world, the Philippine Eagle, to be filmed as part of a documentary drawing attention to its critically endangered status. Cordi founded a non-profit (CMA Fund) to raise funds in support of the Philippine Eagle conservation efforts.
