Hancock Wildlife Foundation (HWF) was established to further promote the knowledge and understanding of Wildlife through science and education.
This topic is for you to bring in any wildlife stories you may come across.

Tomorrow and Sunday, April 23 and 24, Hancock Wildlife Foundation and David Hancock will be at OWL's open house in Delta. HWF will have a display booth and David will speak at 11 AM both days. Please come out and see us and view the amazing raptors at OWL. Also on both days there will be a rehabilitated bald eagle released at 1 PM. Don't forget to bring your cameras.
We hope to see some of our Hancock members at OWL's open house next weekend, the 23rd and 24th. David Hancock will be speaking at 11 AM both days. I'll be at the HWF booth and I'm still looking for help to man our table, especially on Saturday while David is inside giving his eagle talk. The raptor release will be at 1 PM both days as well.
Here's a link to the updated story that CTV news did last night on the male eagle at the Strathcona neighborhood of Vancouver, BC. Our member, Larry, did a great job in his interview. I noticed that CTV also used footage from our eagle nest cam at Delta 2 where 'Ma Delta 2' is incubating 2 eggs.
Wonderful news for the Strathcona eagles and ground observers of this nest in Vancouver, BC.
The male has survived being electrocuted in December!! That is so rare for an eagle to survive an electrocution. OWL (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society) released him yesterday, at the nest site. Some of our local Hancock Wildlife members were able to attend and see him hopefully join his mate. Here's the video of the CTV news broadcast regarding the eagle release.
Here's the link to the HWF discussion forum for the Strathcona eagle nest. I have posted my pictures there showing David Hancock banding 'Pa Strathcona' earlier this week, prior to the eagle's release yesterday.
