Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday officially adopted a juvenile female Philippine eagle and named it Sakura in honor of Abe state-visit.

"Philippine Eagle Sakura's adoption not only highlights the progressive partnership between Japan and the Philippines, but also promotes an understanding of the mission amongst nations," Philippine Eagle Foundation said.
Duterte and PM Abe attended the ceremony before lunch at the Waterfront Insular Hotel in Lanang, Davao City.

PM Abe was grateful to Duterte for honoring him. Earlier, they received a Philippine eagle stuffed toy and a photo frame of 'sakura.'


The eagle was a 2-year old and it was rescued in Talaingod, Davao del Norte last year after sustaining a gunshot injury.

The Japanese government vowed to give at least ₱125,000 annually for the next five years for Sakura's rehabilitation and sustenance and to build an education facility at the Philippine Eagle Center.

According to CNN, "the ceremonial eagle naming and adoption was instigated by the Philippine government and was readily accepted by Abe."

Philippine Eagle Foundation Inc. Executive Director Dennis Salvador that the Japan was the first foreign government to adopt an eagle.
