Global Oiled Wildlife Response Service

August, 2021 By: Paul Kelway

The Global Oiled Wildlife Response (GOWRS)

Wildlife Emergency Preparedness and Response is an integral component of oil spill preparedness and response good practice. A group of leading wildlife response organisations has been working to develop a framework for Tier 3 (international) wildlife response that can meet the needs of the wildlife response community, the oil industry and other stakeholders. The GOWRS project has now culminated in a proposal for a future Tier 3 Global Oiled Wildlife Response Service.

Seminar Recording: Wildlife Response in the Incident Management System

June, 2021 By: Paul Kelway

Seminar Recording: Wildlife Response in the Incident Management System

In an Incident Management System, responsibilities for wildlife response are often designated to a Wildlife Branch within the Operations Section of the command structure and are overseen by a Wildlife Branch Director. This Branch serves as a vital connecting point between wildlife response operations and the wider incident management. Although well-established in certain countries, the potential scale of wildlife response operations and its impact on and needs from the wider incident response can often be underestimated, especially in larger incidents.  

 

This seminar brings together emergency managers from leading wildlife response organisations and from the industry to explore the theory and structure behind the Wildlife Branch, how it has been applied in various incidents around the world and the importance of pre-planning in successful incident response.
