How Dawn Helps Save Wildlife
For 30 years, wildlife rescuers have used Dawn dishwashing liquid to gently remove oil and help save wildlife affected by oil spills. Animal rescue organizations choose Dawn because it removes the greasy oil—while being gentle on delicate feathers and skin. Over the 30 years Dawn has been involved, the success rate for wildlife rescue from oil pollution has increased exponentially. Dawn dishwashing liquid has been a vital tool to wildlife conservation organizations, with thousands of donated bottles cleansing—and saving—over 75,000 animals in the last 30 years. This year, Dawn continues its important contributions to animal rescue organizations with a new, inspired campaign that invites you to become an Everyday Wildlife Champion. When you buy a bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid and go online to activate your donation using the bottle donation code printed on your bottle, Dawn donates one dollar* to its wildlife conservation partners, The Marine Mammal Center and The International Bird Rescue Research Center, which devote time and resources to saving animals and habitats in need. With Dawn, making a difference has never been so easy.*
Special Edition Dawn:
Tough Yet Gentle Wildlife that comes in contact with oil pollution is at serious risk. Oil destroys the intricate layer of feathers that protect birds, exposing them to extremes in temperature. When they try to get it off with their beaks, they risk poisoning themselves–the intake of a single drop of oil can prove deadly for some birds. If the oil isn’t removed quickly, they will die. Thankfully, Dawn thoroughly removes the oil, without harming the skin or feathers of the animal. That’s because Dawn is tough on the grease–but gentle on fur, feathers, and skin. And now, when you purchase a bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid and go online to activate your donation using the bottle donation code printed on your bottle, one dollar* is donated to organizations like The Marine Mammal Center and The International Bird Rescue Research Center.
