NECWA Terrapin and Sunfish Rescue
with Carol “Krill” Carson, founder and president of New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance
Each late summer and fall, ocean sunfish strand along the shores of Cape Cod. Many are trying to navigate their way south to warmer wintering areas. NECWA is the only organization that attempts to save these animals and get them back into deeper water. If they wash ashore dead, then we conduct a necropsy. We also assist Mass Audubon with their sea turtle stranding season which occurs in late fall through the end of Dec. And last fall, NECWA expanded our rescue and research to include the Atlantic torpedo, the only electric ray that also strands annually along our NE shores.
