Wild Things Interactive Station: Bald Eagles and Their Local Habitat

April 13 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Cost: Free with admission to the museum.

Learn about local bald eagles while viewing them in their natural habitat.

Representatives from the Hancock Wildlife Foundation will present examples of the Foundation’s work in support of local bald eagles. This station will include a full screen display from Hancock Foundation’s eagle cams located in various wildlife positions in Delta and Surrey, providing rare real-time views of nesting eagles. The Foundation’s current research on tracking tagged eagles will be displayed illustrating the migration paths and present positions of eagles as they move through their annual cycle around the Pacific Northwest region. Volunteers will also be happy to answer any and all questions about these extraordinary birds of prey.

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation was started in 2006 by the established biologist David Hancock whose first research project on bald eagles started in the 1950s. For over 60 years, he has worked to re-establish this dangerously threatened species. The Foundation continues this work by supporting eagle nest cameras, essential research into migration patterns, other education projects plus habitat consultancy and nest mitigation work.
