eow-eider-logo-640pxThe Effects of Oil on Wildlife (EOW) conference is the only global meeting venue focusing on the planning, response, rehabilitation, and research aspects of oil spills and their impacts to wildlife species. The 2015 conference, scheduled for May 18-22 in Anchorage, Alaska will be the 12th iteration of the conference founded by Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research in 1982.

Since the inaugural meeting, interest in oiled wildlife response has increased exponentially, as have the resources dedicated to preparedness, research and damage mitigation. This conference is the primary venue for experts in a variety of specialties from around the world to exchange ideas and information to increase our ability to protect and restore wildlife at risk.

This upcoming EOW conference is co-sponsored by International Bird Rescue and Aiuká.
