Happy Friday! Last Saturday we held our second Wildlife Recovery Level 2 training at The Marine Mammal Center (TMMC) in Sausalito. We had 25 participants from various agencies and organizations, including TMMC, International Bird Rescue, WildCare, Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue, Farallon Marine Sanctuary Association, and US Fish and Wildlife Service. It was a fun-filled day, beginning with Oil Spill Family Feud, led by Dr. Ziccardi. Who knew Family Feud could be so much fun? The afternoon was filled with stimulating activities such as field first aid for birds, including hands-on training with carcasses, wildlife capture exercises, and a simulated oil spill where recovery staff had to collect “wildlife” and fill out appropriate paperwork. Our next training will be held in Monterey on September 5. To register, please follow this link (password is “monterey”), but please be aware of the pre-requisites for this training.
