Sierra Quadra is excited to welcome David Hancock to our 2014 speaker series. David Hancock, renowned for his live streaming wildlife videos, will talk about the Bald Eagles of British Columbia. As a biologist, conservationist, writer, publisher, and lecturer, David Hancock has spent most of his life studying west coast and arctic wildlife, and has published scientific and popular papers on many species but  his specialty is the northern raptors. Prior to starting Hancock House Publishers, David was a pilot and wildlife film producer and produced many films on these subjects.  His books include The Bald Eagles of Alaska, BC and Washington, Rocky Mountain Wildlife, and The Tlingit: Their Art & Culture.
 
Most recently David was responsible for worldwide acclaim given to the Live Bald Eagle Streaming Video Cam. His current study on The Urban Bald Eagle of Vancouver BC has turned up over 300 nesting pairs in the greater Vancouver area. His studies and travels have taken him to all continents of the world, and he frequently addresses conservation societies on the conservation and creation of better bald eagle habitat.
 
David Hancock is an enthusiastic and dynamic lecturer and we are thrilled that he will be presenting his favourite power point presentation on  Bald Eagles.  He will be talking about various conservation issues and the role of Live Wildlife CAMS in Science and education. Of his now-famous ‘eagle cams’, David says, the first live cameras “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."

Please join us on January 25th, 2014 at 7.30 pm for this vibrant and colourful presentation at the  Quadra Community Centre. Doors open at 7.00 pm. Admission is by donation. Refreshments will be provided.
