OIL SPILL NRDA BIRD INJURY ASSESSMENT TRAINING

Everett, WA - June 27, 2013

OBJECTIVES

  • Provide a brief overview of NRDAR and how it fits into spill response and law enforcement investigations.  
  • Provide information on how seabird/shorebird ephemeral data should be collected during a Washington/Oregon spill response to increase the effectiveness of that data to support bird injury quantification for NRDAR.
  • Coordinate with agencies and organizations that may be involved with assessing bird impacts in the early phases of an oil spill response.
