My Neighbors are Wild!

Join us Friday at Wellfleet Public Library (55 W Main St, Wellfleet, MA), June 28th, 6:30 for “My Neighbors are Wild!” an event by Wild Care “Help! I found a baby bird… There’s a baby squirrel at my doorstep… Now what?” Wild Care, Inc. is a nonprofit wildlife hospital located in Eastham that is dedicated to the rescue and release of injured and orphaned wildlife on Cape Cod. Wild Care operates a Wildlife Helpline, and rehabilitates over 1,700 animals per year; everything from Bald Eagles to White-footed Mice. Wild Care’s Executive Director Stephanie Ellis will cover “what to do” when you find animals in distress, who to call on Cape Cod, and will provide tips for living with our wild neighbors. She will also bring special guests, “Nickerson” an educational Eastern Screech Owl. Join Stephanie for this fun and informative talk!

Stephanie Ellis, Executive Director Wild Care, has an enormous wealth of knowledge and passion for avian rehabilitation, conservation, and nonprofit fundraising on both coasts. She has a special affinity for birds (and mice!) She was the Animal Care Coordinator of the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley, and spent 6 months as Interim Executive Director at the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory. She is most at home in her homeland habitat of Massachusetts. In her free time she can be found dancing, catching a sunset, and exploring Cape Cod’s natural beauty and wonder.
