Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time more than 60 years of lecturing and teaching about wildlife and conservation, especially bald eagles, to include the web, the Foundation’s mandate is to use the Internet in general and live streaming wildlife video in particular to promote the conservation of wildlife and its habitats through science, education, and stewardship. In David’s words, “Our first live eagle nest cams reached and taught more people in a 4 month period than I had in all my years of lectures combined. This is the way of the future.”

White Rock Nest Thoughts
Hancock here: Some thoughts on the White Rock Pair & Territory as of May 12, 2018 At this point it is likely that the WR nest is going to be unproductive. The male does not seem to have acquired a full-time mate. During this spring I have been alarmed about the nesting activities of a possibly a new pair just to the north of the WR nest. The nesting activity, confirmed by a couple of local residents, consisted of two adults regularly sitting on the trees to the north of the WR nest at the foot of 21A Avenue. This ...

Biologist says eagles are now using alternative nest perch
By Ainslie Cruikshank April 19, 2018 VANCOUVER — The biologist who advised Trans Mountain to block an eagle nesting perch on the company’s Westridge Marine Terminal property during construction says the cone was the best option for the eagles. David Hancock, a biologist who has studied eagles in B.C. for more than 60 years, and his colleague biologist Myles Lamont, also confirmed Thursday that the eagles are using the alternate nesting site they established for the raptors in the meantime. It looks like they are incubating eggs, Hancock said. See the photo and read the rest of the story here: ...

2018 Online Volunteers

The image (clicks bigger) shows the avatars of more than 40 of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation’s online volunteers who run our forum, control our cameras, post observations about the activities on the cameras at our four eagle nests and on other wildlife cameras across North America and around the world, and post observations and stunning photographs of eagles and other wildlife they observe live and in person.

There are volunteers from at least 4 countries, and from a number of Canadian provinces and US states. Several of our cam controllers (usually called “zoomers”) are from the areas near our cams – but others come from a variety of places including Alberta, Nova Scotia, Washington, Oregon, Arkansas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maine – and England (the country). The rest of our forum volunteers are equally spread out; most are in North America – but we do appreciate having observers in other parts of the world who can watch what happens on the cams in the middle of our night.

Our online volunteers make it possible for us to have a forum with reports on the activities at roughly 40 eagle nests with cams, more than 20 eagle nests without cameras in BC, a number of osprey nests, some owl nests, a cam watching Laysan Albatross in Hawaii, pandas in several zoos, sea eagles in Australia, black eagles in South Africa – and a whole lot more!

Thank you!
