Hello everyone, just a few quick updates today. The OWCN was briefly activated today for a small spill in Long Beach, known as the Long Beach Berth 84 Incident. One Recovery & Transport team was deployed, however, no oiled wildlife was found and the OWCN was de-activated.
On Monday, Kyra, Emily, Chris, Tim, and I will be heading down to southern California for a brief visit. We plan on visiting IBRRC’s facility in San Pedro, The Marine Mammal Care Center at Fort MacArthur, and Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center. It will be a good chance for us “new” folks to meet everyone down there and get to tour these facilities. Watch for our blog next week for more details on how our visit went!
