Support the Eagle Cams - We need advertisers

Wildlife News
As you'll now see, we're set up to run advertising to sponsor the Hancock Wildlife TV - cameras, discussion forums (soon) and lots of video.

We need business supporters - and we're prepared for you. We already have in place the software to track exactly how many people see your ads and how many click through to your site. We already know that our next season is going to mean millions of people tuning in to watch and comment on what is happening in the nests and with the other sites we have in preparation - and you need to hook your wagon to our advertising horse.

Of course we're a great place for tourism advertisers from here in Beautiful British Columbia - but did you know that over 40% of our viewers came from outside of North America? True - and we're looking for you to talk to them - about whatever it is you are selling.

Please contact us at: wildlife-ads@hancockwildlife.org for rates and options.

We want your video clips - here, not on other sites (updated)

Media + Copyright

As you all probably know, the success of the eagle nest streaming video took us by surprise - and kept us hopping full time for the past 6 months just trying to keep up with the things that you and the rest of the world wanted to know.

As the nest season is winding down, we've been catching up on all the various projects that we've had on the back burner - mostly for want of time and people to do them. One of these is getting our systems set up so that you can share your favourite moments that you've caught from the live stream without putting them up on any of the various commercial video sites that don't pay us anything at all.

You can post them to our Photo Gallery area now.

Note: you must make sure the file names you are uploading don't have special characters in them like spaces. We're hosting this on a system that seems not to like that.

Upload to Victoria/Sidney Video area
Upload to Hornby Nest Video area

Note that both uploads require that you are logged in to this forum with a valid user ID
