Sea Alarm is headed to the 13th International Effects of Oil on Wildlife (EOW), held this year in Baltimore, USA. We hope to see you there.
Hosted by Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network, this year’s conference theme is ‘Preparing, Responding, Advancing.’ In addition to the three days of conference programme, there are a number of half and full day workshops on offer, including one on ‘Risk Communications for Responders’ led by the US Coast Guard and ‘An Introduction to Oiled Wildlife Response Preparedness’ led by Sea Alarm.
As noted on the EOW website, “the triennial EOW conference is the only global meeting venue focusing on the planning, response, rehabilitation, and research aspects of oil spills and their impacts to wildlife species.” This gathering of experts from around the world promotes the sharing of information and ideas to to contribute to improved understanding of the impacts of oil on wildlife, better prepare for and respond to oil-affected wildlife, and to mitigate those effects in as much as possible.
As well as presenting during the conference and associated workshops, Sea Alarm have been actively involved in preparations for the event, with members of the team serving on the Steering and Program Committees.
