Sea Alarm is pleased to introduce Paul Kelway as our new Global Preparedness Coordinator. Paul comes to Sea Alarm with a strong background in international oil spill response work. As Emergency Relief Manager for International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)’s Oiled Wildlife Division and then as Executive Director at International Bird Rescue (IBR), Paul has worked closely with many key organisations and individuals in the oiled wildlife response field.
Paul coordinated response efforts in Norway, France and Mexico and has responded to spills in Spain, South Africa and the United States. In addition to direct involvement in the coordination and management of international oil spill responses, Paul has been active in developing global response strategies and managing international partnerships.
As Global Preparedness Coordinator, Paul will be working in collaboration with leading international NGO’s to develop a worldwide infrastructure to support and enhance oiled wildlife preparedness and response. Presently based in California, Paul will move to Brussels in 2014.
