Exceptional HWF Projects

Wildlife News

 

Hancock here:  Some projects seem to offer more return than others and only rarely do exceptional projects come along.  Those of you who have followed the HWF efforts over the past years will recall the month long tour of schools we organized to take Grand Chief Dr. Rose Charlie and me to talk about “With Rights come Responsibility” and “The Bald Eagle in Spirit & Reality” by Rose and me respectively back in 2007.
 
The Bald Eagle Café evolved from this same incidence.  We wanted ways to increase the value of Bald Eagles to the public and for the pubic to appreciate the roles of eagles in the ecosystem.  The creation of the Bald Eagle Café, an interpretative center where school kids and adults could sit in a blind where eagles have been conditioned to feed, seemed to offer lots of opportunity.  Finding the perfect location on the Sts’ailes lands gave more potential.  I have defined the Sasquatch Crossing Bald Eagle Café in more detail elsewhere.

Vote for MARS

Wildlife News

 

Hancock here:   Our eagles need the support of the various rehabilitation centers around the world.  We thank them for their incredible devotion to our birds and all animal welfare. 
 
One of my all time favorite people, committed to conservation in general, is Maj Birch.  She has devotedly saved a great many birds from a cruel death.  Maj runs the Mountainaire Avian Rescue in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC.  Like a lot of such facilities around the world they have run out of room and need a new facility. She has brilliantly organized her fundraising around an AVIVA competition.  AVIVA is an insurance company that has a public conscience and hosts competitions with enormous prizes for those that gain the most public support through a daily vote.

I have been voting for MARS each day and would recommend you do the same.

You can learn about MARS at:  www.wingtips.org
 
Thanks.

David

P.S.   If you are on the Island in late February come to the MARS Bald Eagle Festival.  I will be there giving a talk.

A British Columbia fisherman made the most unusual catch of his lifetime -- a bald eagle.

Recreational fisherman Don Dunbar was fishing off the coast of Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island on Sept. 7, when he spotted a bald eagle in distress swimming toward his boat.

Dunbar dropped his fishing lines and picked up his net to scoop the bird out of the water.




It's unknown how long the eagle was floating. When Dunbar picked it up onto his boat, the eagle was exhausted and its wings were drenched.
