Remembering Sanctuary Supporter, Dawn Wells

The Sanctuary sends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of long-time Sanctuary supporter, Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann in ‘Gilligan’s Island.' 

Dawn was our first celebrity spokesperson; in 1995, she spoke about The Sanctuary on local talk shows, was featured in our brochures, and once earned $6,000 for elephants on a nationally televised quiz show. 

Her dedication to The Sanctuary's mission in its earliest years leaves a lasting legacy for elephants.
