WILD CARE has positively impacted the lives of many more creatures through Educational Outreach. We offer presentations to community groups to educate the public about WILD CARE and about wildlife encounters. Our goal in our Educational Outreach program is to inform the public about our work and fundraising efforts, help to mitigate human-wildlife conflicts, and to build tolerance and appreciation for native wildlife. WILD CARE shares videos and photos of the animals we have treated, provides realistic alternatives and advice addressing causes of conflicts, and explains options that benefit both wildlife and the public.
WILD CARE also engages in Advocacy and Conservation through partnerships and collaborations with local, national and international wildlife agencies such as the Wellfleet and Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuaries (Massachusetts Audubon), Cape Wildlife Center, Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Cape Cod Wildlife Collaborative. Together we are continually seeking new ways to preserve our local and national wildlife.
