Now I have seen a lot of things in this world, but this has got to be one of the more amazing videos I have watched, talk about a “bird’s-eye view”.
A conservation group released this video on Saturday, attaching a GoPro camera to the back of Darshan, an eagle who took flight from the top of Dubai’s 2,717 foot Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
The group, Freedom Conservation put on the show to draw attention to eagle conservation.
Here is a video of the group setting up for this amazing flight.
Patrick James has worked as a firefighter/EMT for several services throughout the years, as well as a custom metal fabricator, certified personal trainer and chef.
Growing up in the rural suburbs of Detroit, it was during his frequent trips to Northern Michigan where he learned of his love for hunting and fishing. Spending several of his adult years in upstate South Carolina, his love of extreme sports took root in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains as he learned to rock climb and kayak.
