The best way to help out with the rehabilitation of oiled animals is to get involved with an OWCN Member Organization before a spill occurs. By volunteering with one of OWCN’s member organizations you'll gain valuable experience and be eligible for the OWCN's specialized training in caring for oiled animals. For more information go to the Oiled Wildlife Care Network site or contact Becky Elias, firstname.lastname@example.org, OWCN Volunteer Coordinator.
The CDFW Natural Resource Volunteers support oil spill response efforts and helps protect California's fish and wildlife resources. For more information go to the CDFW Natural Resource Volunteer Program site, or contact Cindy.Murphy@wildlife.ca.gov, OSPR Volunteer Coordinator.
