Our Corporate Partners in Action
The Marine Mammal Center rescued Lapawi, a northern fur seal, in 2011. Normally found around Guadalupe Island and the Channel Islands, rescuers knew something was wrong when they saw this threatened species on the mainland, far from home.
Covered in tar and oil, this Guadalupe fur seal was severely underweight and desperately needed our help.
Removing the oil was quite a process. Lapawi had to be carefully cleaned with the only thing we know that can cut through the oil and is safe - Dawn dishwashing liquid, by our largest corporate partner, Proctor & Gamble.
After six weeks of the Center’s constant monitoring and TLC, Lapawi was healthy and strong enough to go back to the wild where he belonged.
