A key objective of the EUROWA Network is to develop and publish best practice guidelines for oiled wildlife response and to make this guidance available for persons working in oiled wildlife rehabilitation, or who are interested to get into this field. This effort started in 2013, following a joint initiative where oiled wildlife response experts came together to agree on the first European oiled seabird rehabilitation protocol. Since then, our library has grown and evolved into today’s EUROWA Standards seriesa set of guidelines representing European standards across the spectrum of oiled wildlife response. An overview of the Standards Series is given below.
