Proctor & Gamble’s Dawn®  Dishsoap has been helping wildlife for 30 years. And by now, you’ve no-doubt heard about how it’s being used on the gulf spill-affected wildlife. Turns out, they’ve been running this oil spill recovery donation program since July, 2009, so this is not new.

But it’s timely:

Everyone uses dishsoap. It’s an easy way to help wildlife affected by the gulf oil spill. Buy Dawn Dishsoap and you can contribute $1 of your purchase to help save oiled wildlife. Dawn is contributing up to $500,000 by September 30th, 2010.

Once you buy a bottle, save your receipt and activate your contribution online here. You can even keep track of how much money has been donated and by state here.

And did you think we’d leave this post without some pure and clean CUTENESS?

If you haven’t seen the DAWN bottles,  or this video, they’ll both melt your heart.

Try and resist this:

Have a great day, everyone.

First oil spill victims “Lucky” and “Pelly” are set free in Florida

Filed Under (Disasters, Rescue and Rehabilitation, conservation) by Alexa & Cindy on 11-05-2010

We are happy to pass along some uplifting news on the oil spill for a change:

The first two oil-covered birds recovered from the Deep Water Horizon oil spill have been set free again off of Vero Beach, Florida, by the International Bird Rescue Research Center (link, below).

You may recall the story of a dirty Northern Gannet recovered off the shores of Louisiana on April 27th, the first official victim of the spill.

Dubbed ”Lucky” by rescuers, this aptly nicknamed bird, along with a brown pelican they call “Pelly,” were flown from Fort Jackson, Louisiana, to Vero Beach and released back into the wild.

Watch the AP video, and check the IBRRC’s blog for continuing updates on their bird rescue efforts. Way to GO, rescuers!
