Richardson Bay Audubon’s spill response
There’s a great video report on the efforts to rescue oiled birds by th folks at Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Santuary. The video includes a first person account from Brooke Langston, who is the center’s director.
If you haven’t visited this area of San Francisco Bay, I recommend it. It’s an important feeding area for migratory birds. The Sanctuary’s 900 acres are closed to boating and other public use from Oct 1 – March 31. Birders get a first hand look at the amazing diversity up of birdlife up near Tiburon.
The tremendous damage to the San Francisco Bay from the November 7th oil spill will be with us for some time. But it’s comforting to know the group’s like this have been doing their part in search and collection and will continue to monitor the the fragile bay.
