Birdy Hour Speaker Series: Tales from a Cape Cod wildlife rehabilitation center
Thursday, January 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Stephanie Ellis while she discusses some of the common species, wildlife injuries, and ailments they see at Wild Care, a wildlife rehabilitation center situated on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. From Bald Eagles to Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, learn why wildlife rehabilitation is important and how you can reduce your impact on our wild neighbors. This program will be very positive and family-friendly, though there will be some discussion of causes of bird mortality.
Stephanie Ellis has been the Executive Director of Wild Care for 4 years. For nearly two decades, she has worked on both US coasts doing wildlife rehabilitation, environmental advocacy, and avian conservation work. A native to Massachusetts, she is most at home on Cape Cod. Stephanie worked as SFBBO’s Outreach Specialist and Communications Director and served as SFBBO’s Interim Executive Director in 2015.
