Welcome to Hancock Wildlife Foundation

Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time more than 50 years of lecturing and teaching about wildlife and conservation, especially bald eagles, to include the web, the Foundation's mandate is to use the Internet in general and live streaming wildlife video in particular to promote the conservation of wildlife and its habitats through science, education, and stewardship. In David's words, "Our first live eagle nest cams reached and taught more people in a 4 month period than I had in all my years of lectures combined. This is the way of the future."

Eagle Photo Contest

Festivals and Fun


The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is now in search of the 2016 THEME PHOTO.  The selected photo will be featured on the cover of our printed program, used throughout our marketing material and will be made into our souvenir button for the year.  The photographer will also be highlighted on our website with a short bio as we honor their contribution to the event.  We will also feature the runner up and create a sticker to be given away during the festival weekend.  

What is better than a great photo of an eagle in our beautiful Fraser Valley?

Please send your photos in by May 31 and if you are not the photo-taking-kind, share with someone who is.  We love seeing all the pictures that are submitted.  The winning photo is selected by the committee at our July meeting.

Details can be found here http://fraservalleybaldeaglefestival.ca/photos/photo-contest/ 

Good luck all!!

What Does It Cost - Part 3

What Does It Cost to Watch an Eaglet Grow?

Part II

We have our first Hancock Wildlife chick of the year , hatched at 6:21 am this morning (April 18) at our Delta 2 nest. Here's our first look at the chick, courtesy of PatB:

And a bit of luck, we'll be seeing a lot of moments like these over the next week or so (clicks a lot bigger - and you can read more about what's happening in each picture here):

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the last few weeks in anticipation of this moment - we have six new nest adoptions plus a $100 donation - and we now have 18 people in our monthly donor program, giving a total of $522/month!

I wish that was enough to cover our expenses - but it's not.

It costs $800/month for the server in Vancouver that hosts our website, forum, photos - and cameras. Internet costs are donated for some of our cams, but not for all - and that's another roughly $300/month. Site visits to fix those things that can't be fixed remotely average $350 per month per site - so another $1400 on average. That's about $2500/month - not including the time our amazing tech person puts in working from home or at the server location in Vancouver.

Can you help us make this happen?

We have several options to suggest:
- you can adopt a nest for $250 (read more here)
- you can join our monthly donor program - and thanks to those who have done that! (read more here)
- or you can donate whatever feels right (five easy ways to donate)


 If you'd like to know more about donating, there's lots of info if you click the "Five Ways" button, and you can read about CanadaHelps here.
