One of the factors of threat, that birds are nowadays facing, is also sea pollution. Due to leakage of oil and its derivatives, inappropriate handling of fuel as well as in cases of accidents at sea comes to the formation of oil slicks. Bird feathers can become oiled and thus reduces bird’s ability to fly away while birds can also be poisoned as they try to clean the oil from their feathers. Thankfully, to this problem is now devoting a lot of attention and experiences, how to act and help oiled birds are already known. One such organization that has as its mission solving such problems is, beside REMPEC, Sea Alarm Foundation and ISPRA, also the French organization CEDRE. From 21st to 23rd of May 2013 I had an opportunity to attend an international workshop in the frame of POSOW project focused on oiled wildlife response, shoreline cleanup and volunteer training.
