Did you wonder why JJ at Lafarge was jumping for joy? Or what Indy and Jules were really discussing after returning from their initial exploration of the White Rock neighborhood? Or why Mrs Honeycomb from Harrison Mills took a break from her vacation to return to the nest? Or why Hunter, the younger eaglet at Delta 2, was so excited that he branched on Saturday?
They have learned that thanks to all the wonderful members and friends of Hancock Wildlife - and of their cams - we raised $4289 in our three-day matching drive! And when that is added to the $2550 pledged by a small group of long-time supporters -
- that means $6839 towards the expenses involved in getting the cams ready for another nesting season, during the brief window of opportunity once the fledglings and adults head off in search of salmon.

P.S. We have an additional update - now that Karen has had a chance to add up all the totals, we've discovered that Debs and her team raised $250 more than was previously reported - for a total of $3,283 from June 24 to July 12! Way to go, Debs, Bev, gemini and all!
