Project Wildlife WON!

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank all our readers here that voted for Project Wildlife this past month. You all should feel a sense of pride knowing that we helped this wonderful organization win much needed funds to further their cause!! WTG!
Project Wildlife

Thanks to heroic efforts by staff, volunteers, fans and supporters, PW took first place in the 2011 Earth 8 Eco Ambassadors contest!!!!
SDG&E presented PW with $25,000 on this morning’s 6 a.m. CBS 8 - San Diego News morning newscast!
We are deeply honored (and extremely touched!) by the support you’ve shown throughout the contest. It is only thanks to your continuous effort, encouragement and support that this achievement was made possible.
Thanks to these efforts, very soon thousands of disadvantaged students will have the opportunity to witness the wonder and beauty of our local wildlife and learn how they can make an impact on their local ecosystem.

With thanks and awe for everything you’ve done to support our efforts,

Project Wildlife
