Symbolically, however, the commitment to retrieve, wash and try to rehabilitate injured birds is very significant. Washing these oiled, injured birds is an act of contrition, a demonstration of concern and an expression of hope... Given the many layers of motivation and meaning behind Dawn’s involvement in Oiled Bird Rescue, I’m willing to look beyond my own cynicism to view any increase in Dawn’s efforts to promote their cause in a more generous and hopeful way.
