The team arrived on site on Saturday 17 November. Lots of oiled birds have washed ashore. So far, 115 oiled birds, mainly grebes and coots, were collected by volunteers and brought into a very basic camp. Resources and facilities are not available. Under those circumstances, effective rehabilitation is not guaranteed and animal welfare requirements are not fully met. Wildlife responders’ organisations are discussing the best and reasonable response option to deal with the oiled birds. Search and collection efforts have been finalised. WWF is very keen in looking at oiled wildlife response preparedness in the near future.
