Slick solution as volunteers learn how to save oiled birds

Oil spills at sea can be devastating for seabirds, but a team of freshly trained Illawarra wildlife rescuers are ready to help save and clean our feathered friends.

Australia's first modified shipping container to clean oiled sea birds was in Port Kembla today to help train volunteers.

The course coincided with the launch of a First Responders Resource Guide for Seabird Emergencies book, pocket guide and DVD produced by Australian Sea Bird Rescue .
