Forecasters predict impact in our area as early as Sunday. If this threat materializes, we will provide information as to what precautions to take as well as where to obtain training to aid in the rescue of animals distressed by this event.
Do not touch the bird or animal! The material is toxic to you! Call the Oiled Bird Hotline at 1-866-557-1401 and give the following information:
1 – where is the animal/bird located exactly
2 – your name
3 – your phone number
4 – your address
At this time, we are taking names to be added to a list of potential volunteers who would be willing to attend a training in dealing with oiled birds. This workshop has NOT been set yet, but we are on standby to provide names and numbers of willing participants. You may call 228/475-0825 and give your name and number. If that training is set, you will be contacted with details.
Thanks to all of you for considering passing this along to friends and family, and asking them to do the same.
