Never attempt to wash wildlife yourself! WILDNorth has trained professionals that follow very specific procedures. If you find oiled wildlife please call our hotline at (780) 914-4118 immediately
WILDNorth has been building capacity at our centre since 2005 to effectively rehabilitate (clean and release) oiled wildlife. The process of cleaning oiled wildlife begins with early capture and transfer to our wildlife hospital. There, animals and birds are quickly evaluated and rehydration and nutritional support is started. Washing oiled wildlife requires space to handle unknown numbers of impacted wildlife of various species, an unlimited supply of hot water, drying pens and recovery pools as well as dedicated staff & volunteers to constantly monitor the progress of animals and birds.
