  • Lost Fishing Gear General Support
  • What We Do
    The California Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project, a program conducted by the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center, helps fishermen recover hundreds of crab pots annually. The success of the project has paved the way for the Dungeness Crab Task Force, a group of representatives from local fisheries, to propose a permanent gear retrieval program. The fishermen and the Wildlife Health Center are working to remove lost crab fishing gear—which poses an entanglement threat to marine mammals—from the ocean, and sell it to the original owners under what they hope will be an economically sustainable model for future cleanups.

    How You Can Help
    While our ultimate goal is for all fishing gear recovery to be fully financed and sustained by the industry, our project currently depends on donor support. Your donation allows us to maintain our current program and encourage expansion to new ports in California, with the potential for global impact. Continue to giving site

  • UC Davis Fracture Program for Rescue Animals
  • For many cats and dogs, they face their time of greatest need when homeless. Millions of companion animals enter shelters across the country, but more than half will never leave. Some may have been found as strays, while others may have been injured as victims of cruelty. Unfortunately, an injury, such as a fracture, becomes a common barrier to adoption. But with the proper treatment, a fracture is often a correctable medical problem. Providing needed surgery for these rescued animals will help them to overcome this barrier and go on to become pets of loving families.

    Our Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is at the forefront of performing the most complex surgical procedures in veterinary medicine. Through the hospital’s Fracture Program for Rescue Animals, we are able to share our expertise with shelters and rescue groups to help injured animals. Continue to giving site
