Home > Dawn Saves Wildlife
Over the last 30 years, the success rate for wildlife rescue from oil pollution has increased exponentially. Dawn dishwashing liquid has been a vital tool for wildlife conservation organizations, with thousands of donated bottles cleansing and helping more than 75,000 animals in the last 30 years.
In collaboration with our partners at The Marine Mammal Center and Bird Rescue, we have developed an exceptional education program that teaches educators, families and children about the impact of oil on wildlife and the science behind wildlife rehabilitation. Downloadable lesson plans will be available for teachers starting April 2012 on our Facebook Page
It’s easy to shrug one’s shoulders and wonder if there’s really anything you can do to aid wildlife conservation. While only a select group of people has the training and time necessary to be hands-on in the field as part of an animal rescue foundation, there’s still plenty one can do to become an active participant in the conservation of wildlife. Here’s how you can get started:
Dawn knows that when it comes to saving wildlife, there are many ways to do your part. On the Everyday Wildlife Champions Facebook page, you'll discover lots of things you can do to save, preserve and promote the appreciation of wildlife.
Join the community and connect with other Everyday Wildlife Champions to learn more about the wildlife conservation efforts that matter to you—from activities right in your neighborhood to major events happening coast to coast. Have your voice heard by posting your own content as well!
So get involved and join—it's the perfect place to speak out, share stories and celebrate wildlife in your own unique way.
The Marine Mammal Center (TMMC)
The Marine Mammal Center is a nonprofit veterinary hospital, research and educational center dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of ill and injured marine mammals—primarily elephant seals, harbor seals and California sea lions—and to the study of their health. Since 1975, the Center has been headquartered in the Marin Headlands, within the Golden Gate National Parks, and has rescued and treated more than 17,000 marine mammals.
Dawn’s donations to the Center support its mission: to expand knowledge about marine mammals—their health and that of their ocean environment—and to inspire their global conservation. The Center’s core work is the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured marine mammals, supported by state-of-the-art animal care and research facilities, a corps of dedicated volunteers, and an engaged community.
Each year the Center’s education programs teach thousands of students and the public about marine mammals, what they can tell us about ocean health and the urgent need for stewardship of Earth's marine environments.
