Wildbase Oil Response works to minimise the damaging effects of oil pollution on wildlife. We undertake the care, rehabilitation and release of animals after a marine oil spill. We also provide training internationally in wildlife oil spill response and management.
We operate in New Zealand under contract to Maritime New Zealand and also work on oil responses internationally. Our experience includes working with Maritime New Zealand to lead the response to the Rena oil spill in 2011.
Wildbase have led New Zealand’s oiled wildlife capability in partnership with Maritime New Zealand since 1998. We are the coordinators of the National Oiled Wildlife Response Team. Through this collaboration, New Zealand has one of the world’s leading oiled wildlife response capabilities.
