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."

Fundraiser Needed

Fundraising Activities

The eagles are working on their nests - and it's time for Hancock Wildlife Foundation to build up the nest egg that we'll need to cover our costs for the coming year.

Here's a link to David's post from June of last year discussing projects and costs - click here - to give an idea of what is needed. I'm sure there will be some changes for the 2015-2016 cycle, but the general amounts needed will likely be similar.

In previous years, several of us have organized projects that have raised some money - the Adopt-A-Nest campaign and the Annual Matching Drive come to mind - but what we really need is a volunteer or small group of volunteers who can look at the big picture and develop and implement a plan that will reach more than our core members, and will raise a much larger percentage of the money we need.

We've all come to eagle watching from a variety of places - and I'm hoping there are a few people who have the sort of experience we need, and would be willing to use their skills to help us keep the cams streaming.

If you're interested, please contact Karen Bills - karen@hancockwildlife.org
Thank You

Famous Turtle Bay, Redding, California Eagles Cam

Wildlife News


Hancock Wildlife Foundation is so pleased to announce the long held association with the famous Turtle Bay, Redding, California eagles by including their eagle nest web cam in the Associated Cameras section on the Live Cameras page.

Some of you will recall that in 2007 Caltrans (California dept. of highways) had tried to discourage the eagles (Liberty and Patriot) from nesting so near a planned highway project by placing a large cone in their nest, but the eagles were not easily discouraged and tried in vain to remove the cone.  It was thanks to a large grassroots movement, headed by Terri Lhuillier, that created enough publicity in favor of the eagles that the cone was eventually removed.

A camera was later placed in the nest and Hancock Wildlife Foundation happily provided the viewers a discussion thread in the HWF forum so that the scientific research could be documented.  Now, eight years later, the link to the camera appears on the HWF camera selection page in order that more eagle lovers can learn about Liberty and her new mate Spirit.  Liberty has just laid her third egg, as she has done in previous years, and we wish her and Spirit success.

The GoPro camera footage released by the zoo shows adult tigers Zambar and Alyona climbing the tree to retrieve meat from its branches and the pair's 7-month-old cubs, Barney and Radzi, climb the tree to emulate their parents.

Bald Eagle count in Squamish draws concern

Wildlife News

Ever year, dozens of people gather by the Squamish River for a glimpse of the majestic bald eagle. Between the months of November and January, Squamish plays host to one of North America’s largest congregations of the wintering bald eagles, but this year there’s been a noticeable drop in the number of bald eagles.

“We’re in trouble,” said the organizer of the 29th annual bald eagle count, Thor Froslev.

 

In total, 324 bald eagles had been spotted by the afternoon, a particularly low number according to eagle experts.

Food for thought.  Is the CN Rail caustic soda spill in the Cheakamus river , August 5, 2005, still having an impact on the salmon runs ?
