Consider a donation toward the care of a seabird!
Consider a donation towards the care of a seabird! With Cape Cod jetting out 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean, our waters are home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds. Many of these birds spend there winter in our offshore waters. Birds such as Atlantic Puffins, Northern Gannets, Common Murres, Dovekies and more are battered by winter storms, entangled in fishing gear, ill due to ingestion of fishing debris and more. During the summer months, Wild Care receives Common Terns, a species that breeds on the barrier beaches of Cape Cod and then migrates south, some as far as South America. Wild Care receives hundreds of seabirds annually. Their rehabilitation is intense, requiring conditioning in our state of the art cold and warm-water seabird therapy pools. These pools help get the birds waterproof and back on the wing and into the wild.

A “Loony” Adventure
August of 2020 was HOT—the hottest in 120 years of record keeping according to WBUR. I spent much of it in my studio. As you might remember from last month, I’ve been nursing a sore ankle bone (no clue as to why as is often the case as we age). SREAD ALL NEWS
DID YOU KNOW??
Wild Care has a state-of-the-art seabird therapy pool, which allows seabirds and waterfowl to exercise on running water. This will help our bird friends recover more quickly so they can get back to their watery habitats!
