Fly with an eagle as it breaks the world record for the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure, the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai

Freedom Conservation and 'Darshan the Eagle' have set a new world record for the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure.

The flight was from the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai - which stands at a height of 2722 feet - and was recorded with one of the world's smallest cameras to give an extraordinary bird’s eye perspective of the landscape.

The charity Freedom Conservation works in collaboration with a leading conservation initiative, SOS (Save our Species) and UNESCO to raise awareness of the plight of threatened wildlife, many of which are recorded on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Darshan the Eagle, who has set the new world record, is an example of a threatened species, which has been successfully rehabilitated through global conservation programmes.
