A resource to provide helpful information to the public who have encountered wildlife in distress and a database for hotline operators.
Hotline for Wildlife is a project of Friends of Cape Wildlife (FCW), a 501(c)3 charity. This database is being developed to assist wildlife volunteers and staff in answering the publics calls regarding orphaned, injured or ill wildlife.
We welcome organizations to join this database. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information. If you currently belong to the Friends of Cape Wildlife , Connecticut Wildlife Rehabilitators Association , or Wild Care Cape Cod you may sign up and register, upon approval you will be able to access the call records system.
Our field guide (accessed from the main menu above) is a work in progress. As more species are added it will become a valuable resource for our volunteers and staff to refer to while on a call. This includes actions, advice, and basic information on animal species that are commonly rescued. Please contact us if you would like to contribute!
