David Hancock: Eagles, Web Cams, and our Salmon Dependent Ecosystem! David Hancock will discuss the changes in numbers of eagles in the lower mainland and the Brackendale area and ‘try to be optimistic’ about the eagles’ future. With eagles and orcas feeding heavily on salmon, the prospects are not all rosy. Biologist, conservationist, writer, publisher, and lecturer, David Hancock has spent most of his life studying west coast and arctic wildlife, and has published scientific and popular papers on whales, seals, seabirds, grouse, and his specialty, the northern raptors. Prior to starting Hancock House Publishers, David was a pilot and wildlife film producer and produced films on these subjects as well as the Haida and other northern Native cultures. His books include The Bald Eagles of Alaska, BC and Washington, Rocky Mountain Wildlife, and The Tlingit:Their Art & Culture. Most recently David was responsible for worldwide acclaim given to the Live Bald Eagle Streaming Video Cam. His current study on The Urban Bald Eagle of Vancouver BC has turned up over 300 nesting pairs in the greater Vancouver area.
