Interview with International Bird Rescue
Welcome to this third episode in a series of interviews with wildlife response organisations that have been participating in the Global Oiled Wildlife Response System project. The intention is now to transition the project to a global oiled wildlife response service, with a guaranteed four-person wildlife assessment team available as a supplementary service through OSRL. We are posting monthly conversations with each of the network partners to raise awareness of the amazing organisations that have been collaborating on this.
In this episode, Paul Kelway OSRL’s Wildlife Preparedness and Response Manager is joined by JD Bergeron, CEO of International Bird Rescue. With 20 years of non-profit leadership under his belt and being the co-founder of a bicycle fundraiser in Zambia to raise money for girls in empowerment and HIV AIDS, you can’t miss the passion JD has for making a difference in the world.
Let’s hear from JD as he shares about the recent bird rescue mission at Long Beach Harbor and his take on what the transition of the Global Oiled Wildlife Response System project means for the industry.
