A Bird’s-Eye View of Paris. (Literally.)

La tour Eiffel is undeniably the most iconic symbol of Paris, as well as one of the best views of the city–if you’re willing to shell out the extra $$ €€ to get there. Victor, a rare white-tailed eagle, takes it upon himself to show you the true bird’s-eye view of Paris as he flies from the summit of the Eiffel Tower, reaching 180 km/hr!

The video is just one in a series on the Freedom YouTube Page, which has partnered the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with the French falconer Jacques-Olivier Travers, who has created a plan to help this species thrive once more after nearing extinction by the 60’s. The result? A hell of a project, and a hell of a view.
