The Hornby Island Live Cam has received Worldwide Press Coverage !
World Press Coverage -- "Phenomenal! -- Awesome! -- Incredible!!"
"But, Oprah, the eagles need YOU!"
Since our LIVE CAM of the Hornby Island Bald Eagle nesting project got launched a few days ago --- we and the eagles are all flying!!
We appreciate the TV, radio and newspaper coverage -- it has been overwhelming. So re-affirming.
The Canadian media people have been unprecedented in their support. It seems that entire production/editorial offices ares watching our eagles. They have become part of our "Eagle Addiction Club" Hmm!!
Oprah, we need you!
If Oprah can rescue America from its addictions, can she help further with the education and enlightenment of the masses on "Environment Awareness"? Slimmer, healthier and debtfree Americans is a hell of a good start -- but it can't be maintained without a healthy sustainable environment in which they have to live. Oprah, the intimacy and the magic of these birds is captivating. Please assist in bringing this awareness of Eagles hatching, Orcas cavorting and White Spirit Bears spiriting! to the public. If somebody knows how to reach this fine lady please do so on my behalf.
When I personally asked last week on this web site about needing some technical assistance -- a fine MS executive jumped forward -- and that help will be apparent next week.
Oprah we need you! I need you to tell the world.
What happens if the Americans find out about our secret stash of Bald Eagles along the British Columbia coast? It's their national emblem that we are showing to the world! Actually a few million hits have come in from the US. In truth most hits have come in from the US so I am just pulling their leg. But what would happen if Oprah or Letterman or the main broadcast channels CBC--CBS--ABC--NBC-CNN--FOX etc etc became fans? Could this contribute to reducing the shooting of eagles for their feathers, protecting crutial nest trees from the chainsaws so there is a place for them to nest, reducing contamination of their and our food supply with poisons? I hope so.
What if they frequently referred to the incredible gentlyness of seeing the male exchange incubation duties with his wife, the hatching of the eggs -- due April 26 -30 -- the feeding details so intimately displayed or, or.. ! That is already happening on Canadian TV, other media offices, in hundreds of companies and thousands of homes. I understand many offices have 'pools' on the moment of hatching, the naming etc. Its all so exciting! The Bald Eagle is part of a good recovery story. We need to tell this story -- the good and the down sides -- of not being concerned.
Some coverage is so unexpected -- THE FORMOSAN Journal --main headlines, with color photos of our eagle!! Incredible! Why?
Last night on an international Canadian-Australlian news broadcast the Canadian host of Hemispheres Ian Hanomansing commented to his Australian co-host on how he had to get back to watching the Hornby Island eagles. On the CBC national evening coverage The Hour George Stroumboulopoulos, the irreverant host, -- had our eagles live on a monitor in the background on air -- so, he said,"...he didn't miss anything!" Our eagles are getting there!
I am setting up a Story Page where I would love to have you post (or send to us to post) notice of all publicity that our eagles get in your area -- Press, TV, Radio etc It will be an interesting record of what parts and segments of the country are interested in Bald Eagles. This site will be a "Press clippings" file of the media coverage our eagles get. Please checkout and contribute!
Maybe I will get a call from a sponsor who would like to be behind this?
Please send these clippings direct to the Story Comments or email to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
