Oiled Wildlife Care Network
Wendy joined the Wildlife Health Center staff in 2018 after more than 25 years with International Bird Rescue. Her career has been marked by a willingness to take on just about anything. She has filled management rolls within the Incident Command System; headed hazing, reconnaissance, capture, and transportation teams in the field; provided care in rehabilitation facilities, and designed, built, and managed those care facilities. Wendy has worked closely with the OWCN since it was founded. She has responded to more than 120 spills nationally and internationally, including the Ventura Oiled Bird Incident, Deep Water Horizon, Rena in New Zealand, the Estonia spill and the Cosco Busan in the San Francisco Bay.
