Abstract

Oil Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) is a wildlife agency created to provide care for wildlife compromised by oil spills. OSPR has established an Oiled Wildlife Care Network (OWCN) to serve all marine species for the entire California coast. All research is designed to improve the care for oiled marine wildlife and improve the ability to determine both the immediate and sublethal effects of oil pollution on marine animal populations. The OWCN is a government, private sector, non-profit, educational institution partnership which allows the petroleum industry to meet legal requirements and represents a State government to integrate wildlife care with resource management.
