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."

Hancock's Last Eagle Tour of 2017

Live Cameras


A message from Fraser River Safari:

December 10 - The final tour of 2017

2017 really was a year of extremes, from record low temperatures in the winter to a heat wave and low, low summer water levels. Despite the challenges we still enjoyed each and every tour and thank all of our customers for allowing us to do this for 11 years now.

The eagle numbers are still very good in the Harrison and with water levels dropping we could have another large influx of birds coming to feast on the freshly exposed salmon carcasses.

This weekend we are running the last scheduled tour of 2017 at 11 am and the weather looks like it may even hold until then. ADDED BONUS: David Hancock will be joining the tour to lend his 60+ years of raptor knowledge to the mix.

If you were thinking of joining an eagle tour this season, this may be the perfect weekend to do so. You can BOOK DIRECTLY HERE  under the "Eagle Tour with David Hancock".

AND if we don't see you this season. Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Year's from our house to yours!
