The main purpose of DEW is to educate people about animals. Through education we hope to inspire young and old alike to take an active roll in the conservation of wildlife. You can help protect wildlife by recycling, keeping your environment clean, sponsoring animals, fundraising for conservation programs, purchasing items that give back to the animal community, and more. Every act of kindness makes a bigger difference than you might believe.


DEW is proud to have made 90% of its facility from recycled materials.
