Wildlife response preparedness

October 2014

Revision 2016

The document provides an overview of the key concepts and solutions in oiled wildlife response preparedness, and explains how a higher level of integrated preparedness can be achieved. This document distills the knowledge and experience gained over many years of responding to spills of crude and fuel oils over several decades and many of the same techniques, policies and operating procedures can be applied to spills of other chemicals that are transported by ship, train or pipeline and that may affect wild animals. This document will therefore also be of value to planners tasked with preparing for events involving those products, and may also be used as a primer for personnel whose job it is to develop the oiled wildlife preparedness plans of their company or country and who have only a passing knowledge of wildlife response.
