We are approaching the time of year when it is possible to get to the cameras - without upsetting the parents!
Which means the bulk of the year's fund is used up in a few short Summer weeks!

What HancockWildlife Foundation would like to do - with the estimated costs!

The most Urgent Fundraising is to re-activate our Bald Eaqle nests for 2010 - 2011

David sees the NEEDS as follows:

A)
Cleanup of existing cams etc; (often means replacing one cam with another that is tested and ready to go as we generally can only "go up the tree" once.)

1. Sidney:
Object:
- remove cam from old oak "fallen nest" tree,

- Replace existing nest cam with new infra-red cam
- Add another ptz cam from another tree for overview
if it is at all possible.

- Concern: we have to possibly replace and bury about 1200 + 400 feet of cable and electrical wiring that is giving static.
- Need to review the present transmission troubles - cam vs lines vs video cards

Projected costs: about $4000 - 6000.

2) Lafarge: - Clean existing ptz cam and
- Insert new cu cam into nest tree.
- this requires another set of tranceivers
- 2 client and 1 access point - 5gig

Our share of projected costs: $1500
This is of course a key site and represents a great breakthrough for industry being "nice" to wildlife. This is my personal priority and will likely have the two best views. A third view is already in place.

3) Delta Owl: - Clean existing infra-red cu cams
- Clean existing ptz cam in adjacent tree.

Our share of Projected costs: $1000

This is also a key site and the two adults, while not nesting in this nest after it fell apart in spring, I believe will be a winner for 2011

----------------------- --------------------------- -----------------------------

NEW Bald Eagle Cam Installations:

4) Delta 2: This is where we once believed eagles would re-nest (old red-tail nest replaced Bald Eagle nest in 1999 when eagles were driven off to Power Pole.) and now they finally have returned in 2010 - after we pulled cams in 2009 that would either show a red-tail nesting or the bald eagles if they returned..
- Buy and install two cams: cu + ptz.
Our Projected costs: $4500

(NOTE: This 2010 year the pair raised 2 young. This is the pair that had nested at this site 1999, in High Tension Poles starting 2000 {first ever} E and W of Highway 17 at the Delta Port Rd through 2009. They have now moved back to their earlier tree. Very consistent nesters and I suspect this is VERY good option that I recommend. The school teacher who lives at site has one of our "Little Scientists" groups.) This is a must. Also we have computer tech on site to keep things going.

5) White Rock Nest: this is the new nest of the old Block Bros. nest that twice was taken down. My good friend who owns the property took my advice and had several base branches placed in the top of the tree to act as base for a nest. The eagles agreed and built their nest on our supports and have two young about to fledge.
The landowner will fund the cams but we will still have about $1000 of Kens costs to get it all going. This is a very good option and I am also certain landowner will pay the cost of the cable signal -- usually another $100 per month that we usually pay. This is a must if the landower agrees that signal be transmitted -- and I think he will.

Our Projected Costs; $1000

6) Chehalis Fish underwater cam:
- needs cleaning and reinstallation.
Projected costs: $1500
This has bee functional last 3 years and gives continuation and close proximity to Nest at #7.

7) Chehalis Flats Project:
- needs two or three ptz's for flats coverage.
- needs microwave installations.
We have these cams and this year could possible have an easier connection to the cable so this could cut costs to about $2000. These two key cams show the Chehalis flats and up to 2-3000 wintering eagles -- right where we have the Fraser VAlley Bald Eagle Festival. Not installed until October.
Our Projected costs $1500

I think PayPal see to all that!
Last time I sent some money - I don't remember much of a fee!
There probably is if you send a cheque - perhaps someone can tell us!

Do you live near enough to phone and quote your card number?

I'm sending mine tonight - I'll report back if there are any charges! Grin

wave Hello

I sent my donation yesterday through PayPal with no problems at all. Once you're set up with them it takes only a minute or two and the receipt is delivered to your email. Smile
