IBRRC was activated immediately to search and rescue birds affected by the spill. The Bay Area based non-profit has a long history of helping oiled wildlife. The organization began in 1971 when two tankers collided in SF Bay spilling 900,000 gallons of oil. Since then the organization has become an expert in the field of wildlife search and collection, stabilization and the washing of oil from affected animals. IBRRC has worked on 150+ spills worldwide partnering with other groups to to train responders in Africa, Europe, Asia and South America.
Locally IBRRC is part of California's Oiled Wildlife Care Network. Any oiled animals will be brought to the OWCN's San Francisco Bay Area wildlife center for treatment. The center is managed in partnership with IBRRC. It's located near the junction of highways 80 and 680 in the Cordelia/Fairfield area. Directions
