Wildlife Rescue Centre Ostend-Sea Alarm sign MOU

As part of Sea Alarm’s ongoing efforts to enhance collaborative, professional oiled wildlife response, an MOU with Belgium’s Wildlife Rescue Centre Ostend (WRCO) was signed in January. Sea Alarm and WRCO have a long history of working together on preparedness and active response since they first met in the aftermath of the Tricolor oil spill in 2002.

WRCO’s new facility, which opened in 2010, is designed for oil spill response, allowing for fast conversion from general wildlife hospital to oiled wildlife care facility, as the need arises. Staff from WRCO has been active in oil spill response throughout Europe andWRCO is an active partner in setting up EU oiled wildlife responders group, which is developing protocols and guidance documents for the region.
