SC Johnson responds to disaster in Gulf

Racine-based SC Johnson Inc., has teamed up with the National Wildlife Refuge Association to assist the NWRA in responding to the wildlife and habitat impacts of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
SC Johnson has partnered with the organization to generate public awareness about the wildlife affected by the Gulf disaster.
“While much of the response to the Gulf oil disaster has understandably centered on providing help to the families and communities whose livelihoods are being devastated by the spill, it’s imperative that we also focus on the long-term impacts to wildlife and their habitats,” said Evan Hirsche, president of the NWRA. “More than 30 of our national wildlife refuges and the hundreds of wildlife species they protect are in imminent danger from the oil spill.”
According to Hirsche the support will help the organization secure strategies to conserve the manatee, sea turtle, brown pelican, whale, blufin tuna, and migratory bird species into the future.
“For decades, SC Johnson has been committed to preserving and protecting our environment,” said Kelly Semrau, vice president of global public affairs and communication at SC Johnson. “We are glad to partner with NWRA in cleaning and protecting our Gulf coast culture now and for future generations.”
SC Johnson’s support will fund a public awareness campaign called Wildlife and Habitat Safety Net.
