Wildlife Week Webinar: Preparing For Oiled Wildlife in the Asia-Pacific Region

Friday, November 17, 2023

Preparing For Oiled Wildlife in the Asia-Pacific Region

Sharing real-world examples of how to improve developing wildlife preparedness in the Asia-Pacific, we will introduce the Wildlife Preparedness Wheel as a tool to guide Industry on their preparedness journey. OSRL will present case examples of the aspects of the regulatory framework on oiled wildlife and how oiled wildlife response is integrated into other response strategies. Louise Chilvers from Wildbase, Massey University in New Zealand, will share her experiences as a world-leading promoter of wildlife preparedness and response good practices with specific examples from the region. Petronas will talk about their experiences working in collaboration with OSRL, Government Agencies and Regulators to integrate wildlife response into their National Contingency Plan. Finally, we will introduce a new addition to OSRL’s suite of published courses, a 2-day distance-learning course: Oiled Wildlife Response Training for Decision Makers, developed in collaboration with Massey University, available in 2024.
