Sign-up for oil spill response team training

IBRRC is now accepting applications for our 2010 Oil Spill Response Team training, sponsored by the San Francisco Foundation Cosco Busan Oil Spill Fund.

Over the course of the year, participants will be trained in oil spill response with the hope that they will be able to join our world renowned team of experts. While this will be a volunteer position at first, you will be considered for spill response, which can be a temporary paid position.

The training will be held in Northern California at IBRRC’s Fairfield bird center. Applications are due by March 26, 2010. Training will tentatively start April 10th.

    I would like to be trained to help oiled birds. Looks like it's too late, but is there a training session anytime soon?
    even if I can't help during the cleanup of the BP spill, I could get ready for the inevitable next spill.
    thanks. Jan Ramirez

    IBRRC has a full response team in place at the Gulf spill of our trained responders.

    Sorry, but we won't don't have the manpower or are we in the position to organize and train new volunteers at this point

    In most case, you can may local groups that need your help volunteering with wildlife in your area.
