2020 Cam Maintenance
Matching Drive

It's hard to believe that the fluffy little eaglets we first met in April are already flying around - and at least one of them is already half-way up the coast of British Columbia, feasting on salmon at one of the rivers with early salmon runs. The rest will be heading out soon, which will give us a brief window to clean the cameras, check the wiring and do any additional projects near the nests. Only one of our nests is currently sponsored (big thanks to Russ Cmolik for donating a new close-up cam for White Rock!) so we are asking those who enjoy the cams to help us get them ready for next year. We know life this year is different for many of us - but if you can help, we would really appreciate it.
Image

We have some big plans - two new cams for White Rock, replacement domes at Surrey Reserve and Delta 2, and hopefully getting to the bottom of the connectivity issue that keeps taking the South cam at Harrison Mills offline - and there will be some large expenses if we're going to do it all. We'll need a lift to get people up to the cams at White Rock and possibly at Delta, and the tree at Harrison Mills is very tall, requiring a professional climbing team if we are to do any work on the cams themselves.

If we can raise $10,000, we should be able to do the most essential work at most of the nests. And happily some friends of the eagles have pledged to match the first $1250 raised in the next three days - so if you adopt Delta 2, Harrison Mills, Surrey Reserve or White Rock for next year for $250, Hancock Wildlife will get $500!

The easiest way to adopt a nest is to
  • go to the "Donations" page on our website (https://hancockwildlife.org/donations/ - or click the button below)
  • click the "Donate via CanadaHelps Now!" link
  • enter the amount of your donation ($250 to adopt the nest of your choice for the coming year)
  • pick "Adopt a Nest" from the Fund list
  • use the message box to say which nest you are adopting and how you would like your name to be listed
  • fill in your contact information and credit card details, and
  • click "Complete Donation Now"
Image

And if this isn't a good time for adopting a nest, you can also make a donation of any amount to the "Eagle Cams/General Repairs" fund or you can make a monthly donation by changing the highlighted box at the top of the page from "Donate Now" to "Donate Monthly" (the first month's donation is eligible to be matched). Many of the funds have a suggested amount - but that is just a suggestion. The amount you put in the Amount box is what you'll donate.

You don't need to be in Canada to use CanadaHelps - and the rate of exchange right now is favorable to those of us in the United States - a donation of $250 Canadian dollars is currently less than $200 US dollars, so if you give $250 through CanadaHelps (or PayPal), HWF gets $250 Canadian dollars, and the cost to you is based on the current rate of exchange.

You can also use the other methods on the Donations page, but it's not as easy to provide all the information, so if you're sending a check or planning to give a donation directly to someone at HWF, please let me ([email protected]) or gemini ([email protected]) know a donation is coming so it gets included in the matching drive.

And if you have any questions about any of this, please do contact me or gemini and we'll be happy to help.

Thank You!

2020 Cam Maintenance Fund Drive

We're On Our Way!

Thank you so much to those of you who have donated - we are off to a great start!

As some of you know, this year, for the first time, one of our fledglings has a tracking tag. We've always wondered where our eaglets go when they leave the area around the nest - and now we know that Loki, the younger eaglet from the Surrey Reserve nest, headed to Bella Coola, BC, which is 448 kilometers/279 miles northwest of Surrey:
Image
She didn't get there in a day (it took 3 or 4 days) - and we won't reach our goal in a day either - but like Loki's first long flight, we are making great progress.

You can follow Loki's progress here - viewtopic.php?f=95&t=494&p=366532#p363544

And you can help us reach our goal by clicking the button below to make a donation to help us clean the cams so we can see next years eaglets clearly; I don't have a button with Loki on it - these are the Harrison Mills adults, and that's a place where salmon run later than at Bella Coola - so perhaps Loki will visit there in a month or two.
Image


Details about How to Donate

If you have questions, please contact [email protected] or [email protected]

Thank You!

PS - I had to include this - Loki was the first of our eaglets to fledge this year - and this is Loki just before she took her first flight; it doesn't say "click to donate" - but will also take you to our donations page:

That was a fascinating and somewhat sad (from the past) bear report Scott. It's quite something seeing bears he has not seen in years due to the drought. Hopefully things will turn around and bit with plants growing and bears can become elusive prior to September (bear hunting).

I am glad all of you are well. Iona, lots of puppies, we know you enjoy them. I saw a lab/great dane puppy yesterday, so cute, long legs, Great Dane ears. They got the pup from our amazing rescue group here where I found Mieko, my torbie cat. I heard from someone that puppies are very difficult to find as people rescued when they were locked in, good for them

Have a good day,
