Welcome to Hancock Wildlife Foundation

Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time more than 50 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."

Latest Pics from Roberts Bay Nest with Hawklet

Wildlife News


We've named the little hawklet 'Spunky' because it so fits his/her personality.  Here are the latest photos from the nest taken this morning by Terry Venables.

Spunky is now doing what we call 'branching' but s/he has not yet left the nest tree.  That is when the flying is considered 'fledging' for the first time.

I should add that I've had queries as to whether the hawklet is still in the nest.  The answer is that unless someone posts something in our forum or contacts us, we have no way of knowing.  Hancock Wildlife does not have a camera in this nest so we depend on observers to keep us informed.  The only local HWF members who live on the southern end of Vancouver Island live in Victoria so it's a good hour for them to get out to this nest.  David Hancock and Christian Sasse both live here on the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, BC.  We have to go over by ferry to view the nest and it's an all day trip, requiring sometimes for us to stay overnight.  So thanks for your understanding as to why we do not have round the clock reporting on this nest as we do on our HWF nests with cameras.
