Welcome to Hancock Wildlife Foundation

Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time almost 50 years of lecturing and teaching about wildlife and conservation, 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 cameras 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."

The Herons of Stanley Park

Hancock here:  Some of our long time keeners will remember that one of our first web cams was at the Stanley Park Herony back in 2006 and 2007.
 
Many of you will also know Martin Passchier from his exquisite images of the Vancouver bald eagle nests that he frequently visits.  Some of them can be seen in the Lafarge and Vanier nest discussion forum threads here on our website.
 
Now Martin has teamed up with Julie Emerson to do a fine introductory book, "The Herons of Stanley Park". As you would expect the images are all totally fantastic, each carrying the Martin insight.
 
If you also love our Herons you will want this fine primer. Last week I was out at the Tsawwassen Heronry with its eagle nest and the seasonal action is well underway.
 
While the text of this is meant as a kids book, the images will be appreciated by all.  It is available from Wild Birds Unlimited (Vancouver and North Van), Reifel Bird Sanctuary, Nature House in Stanley Park, Kidsbooks Vancouver, Albion Books and Amazon.ca for $12.99.  The Stanley Park Eco Society will receive 5% of the profits of this book.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- A neighbor first spotted something strange in a tree off Southeast 55th and Division around 9 o'clock Monday morning.

People started grabbing binoculars and cameras to get a closer look and saw two American bald eagles seemingly in distress, their talons locked together.

But of course this isn't your ordinary bird; this is America's eagle, so word spread like wildfire through social media.

"People are fascinated by the eagles. They are huge and majestic and beautiful," said Kate Carder.

Carder and her husband got an alert from the group Oregon Birders, and drove all the way across town to see if they could help.

"I didn't think it would be that traumatic to me. I'm still shaken to the core, Carder said.
