On a private portion of the White Rock bluff overlooking Boundary Bay in British Columbia, Canada is a small grove of evergreens. One tree, only about 100 feet from the back porch of the home, has an eagle nest in it. The owners have donated the installation of two cameras for us to watch this active eagle nest (closeup); one in the tree near the nest, and one in an adjacent tree overlooking the nest tree (wide angle) with a view of the bay in the background.
This nest was built in November of 2009 after the pair’s original nest, 500 yards north of this site, was disturbed by construction. Two chicks were successfully raised to fledging in Summer of 2010 and also 2011.
The Hancock Wildlife Foundation
Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time almost 50 years of lecturing and teaching about wildlife and conservation 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 cameras 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.”
WildEarth and the HWF have been long standing partners and have worked closely together since 2008 on many projects with various new ones in the pipeline.
