Tonka the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)

The golden eagle named Tonka at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. A hiker in the Angeles National Forest found Tonka with a broken right hip. Tonka imprinted on humans during her recovery at a wildlife rehabilitation center. Tonka spent some time with a falconer as well before coming to the Safari Park in 2004.

The best way to see Tonka is to attend the Safari Park’s animal encounters on the Ambassador Stage.
