Welcome to Hancock Wildlife Foundation

Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time more than 60 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."
