Spectacular images show an eagle's view of the damage climate change appears to be doing to the glaciers of the Alps
- & # 39; Victor & # 39; had a camera stuck between its wings and was flying over the Alps
- The feather director is a white-tailed eagle found in Europe and Asia.
- Images show evidence of climate change damage to Alps glaciers
This breathtaking footage offers an eagle eye view of the snow-capped glaciers of the Alps and shows the damage caused by climate change.
The scenes were captured by tying a small camera between the wings of a majestic white-tailed eagle named Victor.
Victor flies over the mountaintops, revealing the acute damage to the once magnificent glaciers of the Alps due to the climate crisis.
Victor, the white-tailed eagle, pictured revealed this inspiring footage of an aerial view of the pinnacle of the Alps. The mountain range, which spans several European countries, including Switzerland, has been affected in recent decades by climate change.
The mighty eagle can be seen flying as it approaches the summit of a mountain in the alpine region. Victor tends to rise and fall during the video
Here Victor can be seen approaching a huge expanse of snow. Images were provided by a charity called Eagle Wings Foundation
Filming begins with Victor perched in the foreground and a view of the mountains behind him.
The feathered director is equipped with a camera no larger than a coffee roller coaster.
The images were provided courtesy of a Mexican children's charity called the Eagle Wings Foundation.
Reports say the mountain range of the Alpine regions has been changing very frequently in recent years and has changed dramatically in decades. Many wonder if their children will have the opportunity to see the same mountain tops

The soaring bird can be seen hovering over the mountain tops and descending and between the majestic peaks.
Victor flies over a series of large compounds built on top of the ridges. It seems that much of the snowfall has receded near the buildings and the peaks.
When the stunning video comes to an end, Victor crashes through a haze of snow and can be seen thundering toward the arm of a man who was waiting for the bird to return.

Climate change is affecting the Alps, from the composition of the frost that holds the mountains in place to the volume and quality of snow.
Glaciers are receding and bridges of ice and snow are disappearing. Mountain driving is changing as traditional routes become unsafe. Here, Victor can be seen returning to his handler who is waiting near the lake in the photo.
