Strengthening oiled wildlife response capability
APER works collaboratively with key global oiled wildlife response organisations such as International Bird Rescue (USA), Oiled Wildlife Care Network (California, USA), Tri-state Bird Rescue & Research (USA) and SANCCOB (South Africa) and has done so since 2000.
Principal consultant and Director Mike Short has been leading the way nationally and internationally in oiled wildlife response preparedness and response for over two decades. APER is the only regionally based organization that can provide oiled wildlife capacity building and response services with proven experience and expertise to back it up.
