Inn at Cape Cod

Cape Cod’s IFAW comes to the rescue again

We are so privileged to live and operate our inn on the same street as probably the world’s leading animal welfare organisation, IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare). So it is with great interest that we read last week of another wonderful rescue, here on Cape Cod. A harbor porpoise became stranded in Wellfleet, in fact it was the third such stranding in just a week. IFAW staff were alerted to the stranding of a female juvenile harbor porpoise at 8.30 am Thursday last week. They, along with dedicated volunteers, took the creature to IFAW’s mobile clinic (a truck!) where she underwent a careful and thorough examination including blood work to establish her health levels. Thankfully, she was in very good shape was therefore a great candidate to be returned to her natural environment. She was transported to Duck Harbor and then carried out to sea on a sling. After a few minutes she acclimatised to water again and swam away. How good is that! You can learn about stranding work on this website: www.capecodstranding.net , or click here to see more IFAW rescue videos. Whale-watching is another fantastic way to support conservation of marine mammals

 and our inn is only 10 minutes away from mid-Cape’s only whale-watching cruise www.whales.net. Why not combine a stay at the inn with some nature education and fun – we do hope to see you soon!
