The Save the Cams Campaign
Hi everyone! I'm posting here because I need a bit of help. I really hate fundraising - it's right up there with root canals - but like root canals, it's important. And it's never been more important than it is this year.
This is Hancock Wildlife's 10th year of providing a number of cameras - and a forum where we could all learn about eagles and the other wildlife we were watching. And usually around now we'd be asking for your support so we could replace a few of our older cameras and do some maintenance at the various nest sites where we have cams.
This year is different.
We need to raise at least $10,000 and probably closer to $20,000 by the end of June just to keep the cameras running until the eaglets fledge. This includes ongoing tech support costs of about $3500/month, plus a number of bills that are past due.
Unless we can find someone with vision and energy to play a much larger role in our fundraising efforts, I don't see how we can go forward after this season. And quite honestly I'm not at all sure that we'll be able to keep all the cams running through August, when the eagles typically leave for the salmon runs - but I'm going to do my level best to make that happen. And I need your help.
