Senior Technical Adviser Paul Kelway has recently resigned from his position in order to join Sea Alarm’s partner, Oil Spill Response Ltd. At OSRL, Paul will take the position of Wildlife Preparedness and Response Manager.
The position has recently been created and signifies the larger interest the oil industry is taking in the field of wildlife emergency response preparedness. We see this as one of the encouraging results of Sea Alarm’s long term advocacy and cooperation with the oil industry, and the success of our projects such as the development of a Global Oiled Wildlife Response System.
In that sense, Paul’s departure creates mixed feelings. On the one hand we will miss him as a highly valued colleague, on the other Paul will be well-placed to help us establish higher levels of global preparedness within the oil industry from this newly created position.
Therefore, we very much look forward to continuing working with Paul and a strengthened OSRL from 2020 onwards. We thank Paul for his hard work and wish him well in his new role.
