International Bird Rescue Research Center
A team of bird rescue specialists from International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) has been deployed along the Gulf Coast to help with an all-hands-on-deck effort to rescue seabirds caught in the Mississippi Canyon 252 – Deepwater Horizon uncontrolled oil leak.
IBRRC is working with Tri-State Bird Rescue, the lead oiled wildlife organization on the ground, to set up and staff rehabilitation centers in Louisiana, Alabama Mississippi and Florida, where the growing oil slick is expected to impact birds. We now have more than 20 members of our Oil Spill Response Team working on the Gulf Oil Spill.
