CC_National_Seashore_Fort_Hill_Area_001EASTHAM – Both the ocean and the Cape’s beaches as well as the wildlife that inhabit them, will be featured in a new exhibit at the Cape Cod National Seashore.

The exhibit was created by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and will be on display at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham through August.

“Visitors are captivated by this exhibit,” said Seashore Superintendent George Price.

The exhibit features large format images and information about endangered species, including whales and birds, seals, marine animal rescues and habitats.

“It showcases in a most compelling way the Outer Cape’s resources, the work of IFAW, and our common goals to protect animals and habitats,” said IFAW Vice President for Communications Erica Martin.

“Cape Cod is home to a stunning seashore and rich marine life. It is also home to IFAW’s international headquarters and we are delighted to launch a new exhibition at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham where visitors and locals can learn more about our incredible environment and how to preserve it.”

IFAW officials say that the exhibit conveys their and the National Seashore’s shared missions to preserve animals and habitats, and to enhance the public’s understanding and enjoyment of them.
