Meet a few of our animal ambassadors, learn some “coyote smart” tips for coexisting with coyotes, find out how to attract birds to your backyard, learn about the importance of wildlife rehab, follow the story of Osprey chicks from eggs to wild fostering, and take a photo journey to the magical Galapagos Islands!

Osprey – Egg Incubation, Chick Rearing and Wild Fostering

In 2023, Wild Care’s Executive Director was tasked with incubating two sets of Osprey eggs, raising the chicks and finding them suitable wild foster nests. Stephanie will discuss this intensive process along with its successes and challenges. She will also touch upon the history of Osprey on Cape Cod – a true conservation success story, Wild Care’s collaboration with Eversource Energy to mitigate human-Osprey power lines conflict, and the legalities involved in working with Osprey nests, eggs and chicks. Two of the hatched Osprey chicks were placed into the Osprey nest at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, and two chicks were placed into the nest at Bud’s Go-Karts in Harwich!

No RSVP needed. Seating is limited.
