  1. Dear NEWC,

    I opened your website searching for a mention of the passing of Dr. Vaughan Pratt, the founder of the New England Wildlife Center.

    Vaughan passed away suddenly on Jan 30 of this year, and I was hoping to see a tribute to him on your site acknowledging his contributions and expressing regret at his untimely passing.

    Did I miss it? If so, please direct me to the page where it can be found.

    Thank you!


    Kimberly Gilden
    former Clinic Director, New England Wildlife Center

      Hello Kimberly, We have been working with Vaughan’s wife and brother to produce a tribute. If you would like to talk with me about this further, please contact me at 718 682 4878 x122. Katrina Bergman, Executive Director

      • Thanks Katrina,

        I’m so happy to hear that. I have some old NEWC newsletters, photos, news articles etc packed away somewhere if you think they would be of use. Please let me know if there is anything I can contribute.

        I’m also still in touch with the Clinic Director who took over after I left if that might be helpful…

        Thanks again,

        Kimberly Gilden

    Great articles!

  3. Hey There. I found your weblog using msn. That is a really smartly written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to learn extra of your helpful info. Thanks for the post. I will certainly comeback.

  4. The focus hunts a lot when filming a situation with a lot of movement, such as sports game,
    and the image isn’t as clear as I would like given that this camera
    records in 1080p. The camcorder is nearly as good as its
    competitors who are priced much higher. If you plan to use it at the beach or pool, then get one that is waterproof.

    One of the biggest selling points of the Toshiba Camileo “Clip” is its compact size and form factor.
