An eagle named Victor was equipped with a 360° camera to fly over five glaciers in five different alpine countries in a bid to promote action on climate change.
His flights aim to highlight the melting of glaciers in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.
The EagleWings Foundation organised Victor's voyages after reports that 250,000 cubic metres of ice was in danger of collapsing from the Planpincieux glacier on the Grandes Jorasses peak, in the Alps near Chamonix and Courmayeur.

"EagleWings is a dialogue in images, between the view of the eagle – thanks to his camera, of Mankind through the photographer Nomi Baumgartl, and science with images from the European Space Agency," the foundation said.
"It will offer a comprehensive and original view on phenomena that affect the alpine region, issues that can unfortunately be extended to the entire planet," EagleWings added.
