International Bird Rescue featured on ABC’s Sea Rescue with Sam Champion

Recently, we were proud to be featured on two episodes of Sea Rescue with Sam Champion. If you missed either broadcast, here are the segments via Hulu.

Episode One: Heroic Journeys

Here, the Sea Rescue team takes a look at a January 2013 incident where International Bird Rescue’s San Francisco Bay center teamed up with the U.S. Coast Guard to save two gulls entangled together in fishing line and stuck on the mudflats in Vallejo, CA. Our own rehabilitation technician Isabel Luevano is featured in this segment.

Episode Two: Trouble in Paradise

In 2007, the Cosco Busan container ship slammed into the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, causing a terrible bunker fuel spill that killed countless seabirds. International Bird Rescue’s Dr. Rebecca Duerr looks back at IBR’s amazing work during this tragic spill.

And be on the lookout for future segments on Sea Rescue featuring International Bird Rescue! You can catch more episodes of the show on Hulu.
