Kathleen Mulcahy Appointed Executive Director Of The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center

The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center has announced Kathleen Mulcahy’s appointment as its new executive director. With experience and a passion for wildlife conservation, Mulcahy plans to lead the organization to new heights in its mission to rehabilitate and protect wildlife.

Mulcahy brings a diverse background to her role as executive director, with experience in nonprofit management and a commitment to environmental stewardship. As Sag Harbor Mayor, she created the first Environmental Advisory Committee. Her nonprofit experience includes Fighting Chance, a cancer support non-profit, and working with Guild Hall of East Hampton.

“I am honored and excited to join the Wildlife Rescue Center as the new executive director,” said Mulcahy. “I look forward to working with the dedicated team at the Center to further its mission and make a lasting impact on the well-being of our local wildlife. Having been an environmental advocate on the East End for many years, as well as a lover of the wide range of the wildlife of Eastern Long Island and animals in general, this is a bit of a dream job for me.”

The Board of Directors expressed enthusiasm about Mulcahy’s appointment, citing her professional background, leadership skills, and commitment to advancing the Wildlife Rescue Center’s objectives.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kathleen Mulcahy as our new executive director. Her wealth of experience and passion for wildlife conservation make her the perfect fit to lead our organization into the future,” said Missy Hargraves, chair of the Wildlife Rescue Center Board of Directors.

“Coming into the center in the Spring will be a very busy time to hit the ground running, with baby animals coming in almost daily,” said Mulcahy. “My immediate focus will be on our annual Mother’s Day Weekend Plant Sale, May 10, 11, and 12, which this year will feature only indigenous and native plants, and our Get Wild Gala on August 2 at the Southampton Arts Center. As an organization which runs solely on donations and individual grants, we rely on the success of our summer fundraisers to help us treat the nearly 1000 injured animals brought to the center annually.”

The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center is dedicated to providing expert care for injured and orphaned wildlife while promoting awareness and education about the importance of preserving natural habitats.
