Wildlife and Biodiversity on Cape Cod

June 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us as Zak Mertz of the Cape Wildlife Center discusses the state of wildlife and biodiversity on Cape Cod, as well as some of the common afflictions and diseases typically seen in patients at the Cape Wildlife Center. We will also cover “what to do if you find a wild animal” and some helpful things the general public can do to help wild animals thrive in your own backyard.

Zak Mertz is the Director of the Cape Wildlife Center in Barnstable, MA, and the Assistant Director of New England Wildlife Center in Weymouth, MA. He has worked in the field of wildlife care and conservation for the past seven years and is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Zak also holds a Masters of Science from UMASS Boston with a concentration in both physical and socio-hydrology. This presentation will be via Zoom.
