Oiled Wildlife Response Network

Mission of the organisation

Oiled Wildlife Response Network (OWRN) is a coalition of conservation and animal welfare organisations that coordinate the training of volunteers to act as ‘first responders’ in the event of an oil spill.

Together with authorities they are striving towards having an agreed and well exercised response plan in place, which will ensure the best outcome for stricken wildlife.

OWRN aims to coordinate and effectively utilise resources and expertise from our associated organisations, to work in cooperation under one banner to internationally recognised standards of animal care.
