Since early 2005, Sea Alarm has been working to set up a global database on oiled wildife preparedness and response as part of its cooperation with Oil Spill Response. The database includes so called Country Wildlife Response Profiles, which are descriptions of the arrangements that are in place in coastal countries to deal with marine wildlife emergencies. In 2008 Sea Alarm added another 18 countries to its database, which now includes over 60 countries.
Sea Alarm’s Country Wildlife Response Profiles complement the Country Profiles that ITOPF publishes on its website, which provide details on the oil spill response arrangements in all coastal countries in the world. Sea Alarm’s database is not published online, but country information can be provided on request.
