Contents Notes "The Exxon-Valdez oil spill presented the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) with a variety of unique and unprecedented challenges. One of which was the development and management of two search and rescue programs in Prince William Sound, with the home base being Valdez and the other along the Kenai Peninsula, with Seward as the designated home base. Local fishing boats, float planes, and personnel were organized to create two functional search and rescue fleets that combed approximately 900 miles of coastline in search of live oiled birds and oiled carcasses. This effort resulted in the capture of 1,630 live oiled birds and the recovery of thousands of dead oiled bird and mammals. ... This paper will focus on how both of the oiled bird search and rescue programs were created and functioned throughout the six month long oiled bird rescue and rehabilitation effort. Emphasis will be placed on the chronology of the planning and decision making processes during this crisis. Further discussion will highlight how the search and rescue fleets coordinated their efforts with the rehabilitation centers to initiate the most effective impact. It will also take a look at the capture and safety techniques used during the actual pursuit of animals and the initial care and transportation of captured birds."--Abstract.
