Oil Spill in Richmond - oiled wildlife contact

Rudyard Wallen

Hey Folks,

I'm sure most of you are aware of the oil spill in Richmond by now.

With the new moon the tides over the next few days are at about eight feet, so hard so say to what degree the spill will move or birds will fly in and out of it.

I'm also sure you're aware that any bird or mammal in distress will be covered with a carcinogenic substance. Though no oiled animals have yet been reported, OWCN (Oiled Wildlife Care Network) has been notified. Anyone observing oiled birds or mammals should not attempt to capture them. If you see an oiled animal, or animal in crisis, please call the OWCN Response Hotline at:


Thanks. The more eyes the better.
