Welcome to Friends of Cape Cod

Friends of Cape Wildlife (FCW) is comprised of citizens working to provide compassionate care, advocacy, and rehabilitation to birds, mammals and reptiles on Cape Cod that are in distress. We seek to enable rehabilitators to be self sustaining and have the support they need to rehabilitate and return wildlife, healthy and whole, back to native habitats. We offer education to the general public by providing non-lethal solutions when addressing conflicts between people and wildlife and to encourage humane coexistence thru advocacy with our wild neighbors in an ever diminishing environment.
