A large bald eagle that has called the Port Moody waterfront home for several years will soon be available for viewing on a computer screen near you.
Its nest, which is located near the security guard booth at Pacific Coast Terminals, will be monitored by two webcams that will broadcast a live streaming high-definition video feed on the internet.
David Hancock, chair of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, said the video feed is one of several operated by his organization, which are used to educate the public about the natural environment.
“We are trying to draw people’s attention to how we as a society live with wildlife,” he said. “The eagle is a good indicator species. If they can do well, they are kind of a statement that maybe not all is lost.”
