General Membership Meeting with David Hancock
Bald Eagles: Their Amazing Comeback from Endangered Status

Noted biologist, conservationist, writer and publisher David Hancock has
been studying bald eagles in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia and
Alaska for over 40 years. David will present a lively program focused on
the history of the decline and rise of bald eagle populations, reasons for
the cross border differences in eagle populations, potential conflicts with
other wildlife populations, other ecological concerns resulting from
increasing bald eagle populations, and the future outlook for bald eagles.

David has spent most of his life studying West Coast and Arctic wildlife.
He has published scientific and popular papers on whales, seals, seabirds,
grouse, and his specialty, the northern raptors. Prior to starting Hancock
House Publishers, David was a pilot and wildlife film producer and produced
films on these subjects as well as the Haida and other northern Native
cultures. His books include The Bald Eagles of Alaska, B.C. and Washington,
Rocky Mountain Wildlife, Story of the Eagle, and The Tlingit: Their Art &
Culture. In 2006 David established the Hancock Wildlife Foundation to
broaden his 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 four-month period than I had in all my years of
lectures combined. This is the way of the future.” David received worldwide
acclaim for the Live Bald Eagle Video Cam which he pioneered. His current
study on the Urban Bald Eagle of Vancouver B.C. has turned up over 360
nesting pairs in the greater Vancouver area and the Foundation is currently
supporting more than a dozen live web cams in the greater Vancouver area.

Always on the 4th Tuesday of the month:
September 27th, 7pm at the Whatcom Museum

Old City Hall building)
