A country’s ability to deal effectively with an oiled wildlife incident is dependent on many factors. It is important that leading organisations and individuals work together in a well organised and cost efficient way, so that they can achieve a set of pre-defined objectives, following an agreed strategy.
Whatever the level of preparedness of local responders, an incident is always unexpected and creates all kinds of new challenges. In the early aftermath of an incident there is typically an information vacuum in which it is unclear what is happening, who is doing what and which obstacles may be emerging.
