Sweet release: More cleaned birds set free

There’s a really great story this week in the Marin Independent Journal about the latest release of cleaned birds at Tomales Bay.

One of IBRRC’s longtime volunteers, Carol Lombard, is featured prominently in the front page story.

A total of 383 birds have been released back into the wild. Nearly 2,500 birds perished in the spill that struck San Francisco Bay on November 7, 2007.

    That is countable perished. It may give people some solice to think that only a few thousand birds died in this man-made disaster. How many really died will never be known. It is wonderful that IBRRC can save the unfortunate victims that are lucky to be rescued. In 1971 that couldn’t be done.
