Oiled wildlife response training is offered to various levels, from on-the-ground responders to response managers. We teach the technical skills required to undertake operational tasks in search and collection of oil-affected wildlife; cleaning and rehabilitation of oiled animals; and development of oiled wildlife facilities.
Additional training is available for those taking on an area leader role and for those responsible for ensuring your organization is prepared for an oiled wildlife event. OWRT offers advanced training in oiled wildlife response management. Led by some of the world’s most experienced oiled wildlife managers, this training will ensure your organization is well equipped to manage a complex oil spill event.
