The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center is pleased to announce the appointment of The Honorable Kathleen Mulcahy as its new Executive Director. With a wealth of experience and a passion for wildlife conservation, Ms. Mulcahy is poised to lead the organization to new heights in its mission to rehabilitate and protect wildlife.

Kathleen Mulcahy brings a diverse background to her role as Executive Director, with a proven track record in nonprofit management and a deep commitment to environmental stewardship. As Mayor of Sag Harbor, she created the first Environmental Advisory Committee in the history of the Village.   Her recent experience with Fighting Chance, a cancer support non-profit, and previous experience with Guild Hall of East Hampton, gives Kathleen in-depth knowledge of the non-profit landscape on the East End. Her leadership style, characterized by innovation and a collaborative approach, is expected to bring fresh perspectives, and drive positive change within the organization.


“I am honored and excited to join the Wildlife Rescue Center as the new Executive Director,” said Kathleen 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 Ms. Mulcahy’s appointment, citing her impressive professional background, strong 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 in to the center in the Spring will be a very busy time to hit the ground running, with baby animals coming in almost daily”, said Kathleen, “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 2nd 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.”
