AVMA VMAT Deployed to Assist in Oiled Bird Response

Members of the AVMA Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams will be deploying to assist with cleaning and caring for birds and wildlife affected by an oil spill as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Four members of AVMA VMAT2 will be working under the direction of Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research at its facility in Delaware over the next few days. Last year, a number of VMAT members attended Tri-State Bird Rescue’s training course, which prepared them for this assignment. The AVMA VMAT program is generously sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation. For updates on the situation and for easy access to resources available, visit:
