Dubai Star Spill Response Update: 2030, October 30

Field teams ended their activities at dusk this evening. There were no confirmed reports of oiled wildlife although numerous birds were seen in the area of the spill. The action plan for tomorrow is to deploy three additional teams. The OWCN’s portable oiled wildlife stabilization trailer will be deployed tomorrow morning to stand by near the spill site in case animals are collected. OWCN member organization WildCare’s staff and volunteers will also be standing by to stabilize oiled wildlife at their facility. The San Francisco Bay Oiled Wildlife Care and Education Center in Fairfield is the area’s primary care facility for oiled birds. It is being prepared in case animals are collected and require cleaning and long-term rehabilitation.
