Best Practices for Migratory Bird Care During Oil Spill Response

Best Practices for Migratory Bird Care During Oil Spill Response (Best Practices) is the result of a Fish and Wildlife Countermeasures Coordination Project undertaken by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The goals of the project include the development of national “best practices” using established protocols for keeping unoiled birds away from an oil spill and for dealing with oiled birds. Establishing a standardized approach helps protect wildlife resources, enables On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) to focus on other aspects of spill response, and helps instill public confidence in overall response activities. A group comprised of natural resource management agencies, rehabilitators, veterinarians, and industry representatives developed this document at a 3-day workshop held in February 2001 in Anchorage, Alaska.
