Nesli dünya ölçeğinde tehlike altında olan şah kartal “Aquila Heliaca“, Güneydoğu Avrupa’dan, Orta ve Batı Asya’ya kadar geniş yayılış gösteren yırtıcı bir kuş türdür. Popülasyonunun büyük çoğunluğu göçmen olan şah kartallar, yuva yaptıkları alanların tahrip edilmesi, zirai zehirler, elektrik hatlarının yoğunluğu gibi tehditlerle karşı karşıya. Bu tehditler sah kartalların ölümlerine ve yaşam alanlarının daralmasına sebep olmaktadır.
