Sanctuary News & Events
As diamondback terrapins emerge from salt marshes to begin their nesting season, members of Cape Abilities in Eastham have created 25 protective steel wire cages—known as predator enclosures—to be placed around turtle nests to discourage red foxes, raccoons and other animals from digging up nests and eating the eggs.
