Join Cape Cod National Seashore Wildlife Ecologist Dr. Robert Cook for a one-hour presentation focusing on some of the lesser-known and less conspicuous species of wildlife in the park, what we do and do not know about them, and the roles they play in the seashore’s ecology. The habitats of Cape Cod National Seashore help support hundreds of species of wildlife that live in or pass through on migration each year. Of these, relatively few are large, conspicuous species easily seen and well-known to park visitors and area residents. The vast majority of these creatures remain largely unseen as a result of being rare or having habitat needs or behaviors that keep them out of the public eye.
