Points of Light Celebration Honoring the Bay Area's Top Volunteers, August 2001

Marj Davis, Director of Fawn Rescue, was honored at The Points of Light Celebration. It is held once a year and, chosen by judges from 500 nominees, the top twenty-five volunteers in the Bay Area are honored. The decisions were based on dedication, motivation, overcoming obstacles, meeting goals, and the quality of the organization's achievement. The celebration includes each honoree lighting a candle and making a brief statement.

"I light my candle for every fawn that has been orphaned or injured by human interference; and for my deep obligation to correct this wrong by caring for, protecting and returning these fragile creatures back into the wild where they belong."

~ Marj Davis

California Department of Fish and Game, Wildlife Investigations Lab

Marjorie Davis
"The Wildlife Investigations Laboratory would like to recognize you for all the years and long hours in caring for wildlife. You have pioneered techniques in caring for and rehabilitation of fawns through research and application.

You also went a step beyond and took the time to prepare a manual of fawn care. You shared with others the techniques that you learned through the years so that they wouldn't have to start where you did but could give quality care to fawns as situations arose.

Marj, you have been a friend to the Lab. You have provided us with samples and information when requested. You have shown sound biological responses to wildlife with problems, helping to lessen the suffering when appropriate and caring for those that can be helped.

Marj, your knowledge and cooperation is much appreciated and your friendship is cherished."

Thank you for caring.
The entire staff of the Wildlife Investigations Lab, California Department of Fish and Game
