Wildlife Response to Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

We've had a number of questions to our Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Program about wildlife rehab for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, Wildlife Rehabilitation Coordinator Amy LeMonds was interviewed for a report on WKYC-Channel 3 this morning.

We're referring callers to Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research of Delaware, an organization leading the wildlife rescue efforts following the Deepwater Horizon incident. Tri-State's oil spill response team has been on the Gulf Coast since the last week in April and is working with their West Coast colleagues, International Bird Rescue Research Center, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to manage the rehabilitation of oiled wildlife.
