Oiled wildlife volunteer training

This last year I had the opportunity to participate in an in depth training as part of an oiled bird response team through the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC). The training was intense, and required a lot of committment, including regular trips up to Cordelia throughout the year, however it was worth the effort. You need to have past experience working with birds and be a current volunteer at a wildlife rehab facility to qualify–if you’re not already, get started so you qualify next year! Note that this is for birds only–the Oiled Wildlife Care Network works with other species, and also offers trainings for qualified individuals.


The IBRRC is currently accepting applications for this years’ training. You can download the flyer: oil spill response team recruit [pdf] for more information.

About Allison

I am the new Executive Director of The Otter Project in Monterey, California! Originally from the Bay Area, I went to school in San Diego, and came back north to Monterey for graduate school, where I found my calling: saving sea otters! Working for The Otter Project combines my passion for environmental policy with my love of animals. When not advocating for sea otters, I enjoy yoga, volunteer wildlife rehab, reading, and spending time with my cat Alyssa, who, for the record, I did not name. I have been with The Otter Project since November of 2007.
