The Madagascar Fish Eagle (Haliaeetus vociferoides) is classified as "Critically Endangered". Its world population is estimated at around 120 breeding pairs (R. Watson in litt. 2010). The annual breeding success seems to be very low, but individual life expectancy is high.

Ankarafantsika National Park is a good place to see Madagascar Fish Eagles in the wild. There are several watchtowers around Lake Ravelobe and eagles can also be seen from the roadside. This picture of a pair was taken in the evening, in bad light conditions.
