EUROWA Part B – Animal Care during an Oiled Wildlife Response

Author: EUROWA
Year of publication: 2016
Part B is the EUROWA Network’s joint protocol for oiled seabird rehabilitation. The protocol describes animal care methods during an oiled wildlife response and explains rehabilitation processes.

The document is freely available aiming to reach as many people and organisations working in Oiled Wildlife Response as possible, with the goal of collaboration and sharing good practice, increasing knowledge and skills and encouraging networking and collaboration amongst responders. In this way EUROWA hopes that good practices, which ensure the highest level of care for wildlife, are in immediate reach for those who wish to implement them, whenever needed.

Disclaimer: Reading this protocol as a 'cook book' without any previous experience in oiled bird rehabilitation is not a substitute for following hands-on training under the guidance of experienced oiled wildlife responders. Without such training the use of this protocol may not result in the successful rehabilitation of oiled birds and may, in some situations, harm the birds under care. Sea Alarm and the EUROWA Network cannot be held responsible for eventual poor results achieved while using this protocol during an oiled wildlife response.

Availability: Available to the EUROWA Network, trained EUROWA Responders and any other interested individuals/ or organisations upon request.
Associated with the following EUROWA Courses: Advanced Responder Course, Specialist Module Packages, Basic Veterinarian Course, Veterinarian Specialist Course.
