Cape Cod Stranding Network to Merge with IFAW
“This merger is a great fit for both organizations,” said A.J. Cady, IFAW’s Director of Animals in Crisis and Distress, “As a founding member and long-time supporter we’ve been thrilled to see CCSN emerge as a leader in stranding response. By joining forces, IFAW is in a better position to provide our international connections and Emergency Relief staff to grow the stranding team on Cape Cod into the world’s best. The combined team is stronger, but we will always need the support of the Cape community. This is, and will remain, a network of caring people giving their time and energy to save marine mammals.”
CCSN and its many dedicated, trained volunteers will continue to respond to all reports of stranded marine mammals on Cape Cod and southeastern, Massachusetts. “This is the next step in our long partnership with IFAW,” said Sarah Herzig, Stranding Coordinator at CCSN. “Together we can be even more effective, but we can’t succeed without help from the public and our partners at the New England Aquarium and the National Marine Life Center.” .
