FCW Update

November 20, 2016

Dear Supporters of Friends of Cape Wildlife,

Friends of Cape Wildlife (FCW) is comprised of citizens working to secure a long-term future for the Cape Wildlife Center under a new entity beginning March 1, 2017.  Until then, we advocate for compassionate medical care and innovative rehabilitation for birds, mammals and reptiles. Our continued priority is to return wildlife healthy and whole back to native habitats including freshwater and marine environments, woodlands, fields, and the skies over Cape Cod and surrounding regions. 

We had a very successful community meeting last Sunday, November 13, with over 175 attendees. There was an outpouring of interest to keep the doors from closing on March 1. 

Now is the time to lend your support.

Please consider a donation via the Pegasus Foundation which is the entity who has made it possible for us to stay open this winter. We don’t know what the future will bring after that time, but we can only hope that another organization or a number of entities can step forward to continue the medical and rehabilitation care of our wildlife.

Come to our first volunteers’ meeting on December 7 at 11am at Cape Wildlife Center located at 4011 Main Street in Barnstable. 

This meeting is for individuals who are willing to do the work that it will take to reach our vision of a sustainable center dedicated to professional and humane wildlife care. 

For the animals, 

Theresa M. Barbo

Three days ago, this red phase eastern screech owl was hit by a car, picked up by caring people, and brought in to Cape Wildlife Center right away. She was very depressed and non-responsive over the first day, however with support including fluids, pain medications and food, she has been recovering. Today she graduated from intensive care to an outdoor flight habitat where she immediately indicated leaving ASAP would be her preference - a great sign! However, head injuries are never to be taken lightly so CWC will continue to observe her for a few more days and the if all goes as expected, her finder will come and return her to her territory where her mate is waiting.
