How do you love wildlife? This month, Dawn and animal advocate Ian Somerhalder are celebrating the people whose lives have been impacted and redefined by wildlife with the debut of its “We All Love Wildlife” video series. The heartfelt series showcases the profound, positive influence that wildlife has had on individual rescue volunteers from the International Bird Rescue (IBR) and The Marine Mammal Center – a college student, a mom, a surfer and a veteran volunteer – all dedicated to helping save and rehabilitate marine animals in need.
Today Ian joined Dawn at the IBR’s San Pedro, Calif. facility where guests experienced an exclusive tour and shadowed veteran volunteers for a behind-the-scenes look at the impactful and profound work happening at the wildlife rescue center. The event also included the release of several rehabilitated birds back into the wild.
