Here’s a couple of sugestions:
- Near the beach or harbor? Keep an eye out for stranded birds.
- If you find one, immediately call: 877-823-6926.
- In the meantime, keep dogs and people away until the birds can be rescued. One of worst issues we have found is the public and free roaming dog walkers scaring tired, oiled birds as they beach themselves. If you can steer people away from these sensitive creatures, you’d be doing a great service.
- Spread the word in your group. You certainly can always help IBRRC with a donation of some sort. Our non-profit work goes beyond oil spills. We co-manage two centers in California and work internationally, as well. IBRRC has responded to over 160 oil spills worldwide. Unfortunately, this won’t be our last.
