We at IBRRC were saddened to hear of the recent death of Melina Mosch. Melina was a key part of Project Blue Sea, an environmental advocacy and direct action organization that we have worked side-by-side with at a number of spills in Europe.
Melina was a vital part of the team caring for oiled birds in the response center at Keila during the Estonia Mystery Spill in 2006. She later interned in IBRRC’s rehabilitation program at Cordelia, California and was known by us all for her hard work, thoughtfulness and her dedication to animals.
She had battled illness for several years before finally succumbing on February 20, 2010. She will be sorely missed by all of us, human and non-human animal alike.
