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."

RE Application for Re-Zoning of The Turf Farm in Delta (Envirosmart Organics Ltd of Delta).

Wildlife News

 

Hi All: 
 
I have felt incredibly obligated to address this issue.  Not only is the Turf Farm's composting activities killing eagles and other wildlife it is a major danger to human beings -- both on the adjacent Highway 17 and the Boundary Bay Airport.
 
Attached please find my submission to the BC Environmental Protection Department.  This states my objection to the active bating of wildlife and then the direct killing of the bated-in birds.
 
Thanks for your attention to this issue.  Since my last comment on this issue we now know that several eagles have been killed by the adjacent traffic and undoubtedly more will be and it is so likely that humans will also be killed by this irresponsible activity.  I hope the government people responsible will either end such irresponsible baiting or personally get sued by the upcoming grieved parties.  Holding a party and inviting a few thousand birds is OK but holding that party on an active airport runway approach or beside a very busy highway is irresponsible, particularly when you know this is happening.
 
Thanks.
 
David Hancock

Save Echo Lake Eagle Night Roost

Wildlife News

 

Hancock here:  Our Chehalis Salmon and Bald Eagle Preserve is threatened by the chipping away of the key elements that make it so special, the pure water and the adjacent old-growth forest that both cleans the water and provides safe overnight roosting places for thousands of eagles.
 
I would say that this proposal to log these rare large trees would not even be considered since so few are left but some people want to extract the last dollar from every single resource, even if it is for such short lived purposes.
 
Please say, "Keep your hands and saws off the old-growth forest of Echo Lake and keep our Chehalis Salmon & Eagle Preserve safe."
 
It is incredible how we have attempted to preserve this several times before and some greed-driven individual still comes back for another dollar's worth of our heritage.  Just say NO.
 
Our live streaming CAMS on the Harrison Mills Bald Eagle Nest, when pointed to the south, look up into the Echo Lake watershed.  it is right beside the Chehalis River where our 10,000 bald eagles gather all fall and winter and largely roost in those very trees.
 
Thanks.
