Readiness

Always Prepared

The Oiled Wildlife Care Network (OWCN) is constantly working to increase California’s readiness to respond to oiled wildlife events. Being ready means having a team of trained responders from border to border, pre-staged equipment and supplies around the state, specialized facilities ready to received oiled animals, and a plan to bring it all together. This includes protocols for capture, transportation and care developed specifically for the wildlife found in our state.
