Langkawi or also known as the the Jewel of Kedah is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea. Sanctuary of some of the most ancient rainforest in the world, full with exotic flora and fauna. On june 1, 2007 Langkawi Island was given a World Geopark status by UNESCO.

The White-bellied Sea Eagle (71cm) is the largest of the species present. The sea eagle's head and under parts are white with grey back and wing-coverts. Its impressive wingspan lifts the eagle high above the crowd and is usually spotted soaring in higher altitudes. These birds are the lords of the skies.
