Financial Support is great! We have a number of ways to donate - checks or money orders from anywhere in the world, PayPal, CanadaHelps, by phone, monthly donations, or in person if you see David Hancock or other folks from Hancock Wildlife at an event.
|Or you can just go with
If you're wondering what we're planning to do with your money, you can find the information here - 2012 - 2013 Review of Projects and Costs.
To summarize briefly:
Total Maintenance and Upgrade Costs - $100,000
|The nest cam work needs to be done as soon as the eagles head north for the salmon runs, which is typically in early August - so to encourage people to donate before that, four lucky people who donate before the end of July will get a "thank you" gift from David Hancock and Hancock Wildlife - click the button to the right for details.|
Our Calendar for 2013 will be going to print at the end of July - here's a link to the page where you can order your calendars - staticpages/index.php/2013CalSale - and here's a page from the 2012 calendar to give you an idea of what they're like - you can click it for a much larger image.
As you can see, not only does each page have a lovely large, high-resolution image - but there are also a number of smaller images, many taken from our cams, with others submitted by members and supporters of Hancock Wildlife Foundation.
|Here's another great gift idea - for yourself or for a friend - photographer Christian Sasse has made four of his prints available for purchase to benefit Hancock Wildlife Foundation. Click on the image on the right to see all four prints and place your order. The prints come in two sizes - and are definitely suitable for framing!|
|We also have a variety of eagle-themed items for sale in our Cafe Press store - including two new designs featuring Linux from Delta 2 - and more new designs in the works! You can click on either of the images to go to the Cafe Press store, then click on any item with an image you like, and you'll find a links to other items using the same image in the "browse more products" area at the bottom of the page.|
We also need people who can donate their time and skills. For instance, some of you may have noticed that many of us writing these stories and posts about our plans for next year, and what we need to accomplish them are already busy with other areas of the website and forum, and speaking just for me, I know I'm not giving this project the time it deserves - because I just don't have any more time to give. I'm guessing there are people out there who have done successful fundraising drives with other entities who might have some great suggestions, or might be able to take on some of the tasks.
And I'm positive that there are other ways to help that have never occurred to us - and would be marvelous, if we only knew it was an option. If you'd like to get more involved, please let us know (my email is judyb at hancockwildlife dot org). Some of the tasks - like staffing the HWF booth at local eagle festivals - require some degree of proximity to our core territory in the lower mainland of British Columbia. But thanks to the wonders of the internet, others can be done from around the globe.
And you can start with a little step - if you haven't already done so, find the discussion thread for your favorite eagle cam - and make a post about what you're observing! It's easy, and you'll be joining a really great group of people.
