Oil Spill Advice for Vets Available Online

Sanctuary sealA specialist web-site, offering expert and practical advice to veterinarians on the care of seals, seabirds and other wildlife victims of oil spills, has been opened by the Irish Seal Sanctuary (ISS) of Balbriggan.

 

The site, which was created for the ISS by fourth year veterinary student Sarah Keegan, was first proposed by Professor Steven Carrington. Technical advice and support was also given by veterinary and oil spill experts from all around the world.  

Funding to assist the project was provided by the Marine Institute.  

The site can be accessed at www.irishsealsanctuary.ie/vets.
