How An Oiled Bird Is Washed
Jay Holcomb, Executive Director of the International Bird Rescue Research Center, explains how an oiled bird from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is washed at the Fort Jackson Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Louisiana.
In this video from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, you get to see what goes on inside the Fort Jackson Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Jay explains what happens when a bird becomes oiled and about the process of washing the bird.
What a difference they are making one animal at a time! You can really see it in the photo below.
I thoroughly enjoy all of Jay’s videos that have been hitting the web! You may also like the video of Jay explaining how Dawn dish washing liquid became the primary tool for cleaning oil from wildlife.
