Planning and Operations Workshops, Auckland November 2015

Louise Chilvers from Wildbase Oil Response, Massey University and Phil Battley from the Ecology Department of Massey University travelled to Maritime New Zealand’s Planning and then Operations Workshops in Auckland in November 2015. The workshops were held to get the Planning and Operations NRT teams working together on an exercise in the far north of Northland.  A large component of the workshops was to identify how WebEOC would operate and could help keep track of planning tasks, situation awareness updates and operation actions during an oil spill. Wildbase was there, not only to learn, but help coordinate and present information for the wildlife side of the exercise. These exercises were great opportunities for Wildbase to work with Maritime New Zealand and the NRT, getting to know representatives from across New Zealand and understanding more about the roles are in the NRT response structure and how they will work together in a response. As always, one of the most important goals of the exercises is meet people and get the wildlife message across and integrated into just about every step of an oil response.
