      Tri-State Leads Wildlife Response to Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
      Experts from Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research are leading the wildlife rescue efforts following the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico. Tri-State’s oil spill response team has been on the Gulf Coast since the last week in April and is working with their West Coast colleagues, International Bird Rescue Research Center, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to manage the rehabilitation of oiled wildlife.

      Don’t miss out on the chance to learn more about volunteering at Tri-State at one of our upcoming information sessions in June. These quick 1-hour sessions give an overview of what it means to volunteer in the Wild Bird Clinic. Once you attend the info session, you are eligible to take one of the all-day hands on workshops! Check the event calendar for dates and times.
