Presentation by Stephanie Ellis: Executive Director, Wild Care, Inc.

“Help! A bird struck my window…,” or “There’s a baby squirrel at my doorstep…” Sometimes our wild neighbors need a healing hand from Wild Care, which serves as the nonprofit wildlife hospital located in Eastham 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. Stephanie 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, and turtle #45, Wild Care’s beloved educational Eastern Box Turtle. Stephanie was the Animal Care Coordinator of the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley and served as Exec. Dir. of the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society in California. She has been leading Wild Care’s wildlife rehabilitation work since 2016.
