Boston - Following a busy summer of working with Wild Care to rescue osprey from utility poles, Eversource continues to support the local wildlife clinic this holiday season with a Community Impact Grant. The energy company’s donation will help the organization continue its mission of treating ill, injured and orphaned native wildlife.
“Wild Care responded to two osprey nest fires this summer that occurred on top of our utility poles,” explained Eversource Senior Environment Specialist Lynn Towill. “Our Field Operations Team worked alongside Wild Care to place the birds back in their nest on top of a newly built platform. We’re working together with for a better tomorrow for Cape Cod residents, both human and animal alike.”
Each year Wild Care accepts up to 1,700 wild animals for treatment. In addition to rehabilitating injured animals, the Eastham-based organization focuses on educating the public on ways they can help avoid harming our animal neighbors. All services are provided free of charge which makes donations from organizations like Eversource even more meaningful.
“We are so thankful to Eversource for their support, collaboration and assistance with wildlife rescues over the past few years,” said Wild Care Executive Director Stephanie Ellis. “It is clear that Eversource is not only committed to the community, but also to the environment and to wildlife. Eversource has been a great community partner and we’re looking forward to working together more in the future.”
