The Spill on Dawn
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Annapolis Valley
City:Wolfville, NS
School:Wolfville School
Abstract:This project investigated how well dish detergents, in particular Dawn, are at removing oil from bird’s feathers. Feathers were weighed, dipped in oil, washed, rinsed, dried and reweighed. The assessment was based on 3 responses: feather condition, feather structure and oil removed. It was determined that Dawn was the best because it removed the most oil and was the most gentle.
