Expert Recommends Killing Oil-Soaked Birds

"According to serious studies, the middle-term survival rate of oil-soaked birds is under 1 percent," Gaus says. "We, therefore, oppose cleaning birds."

In other words, cleaning birds is mainly theater for BP.

I saw this and thought I would share

FORT JACKSON, La. (AP) — Inside a warehouse-turned-refugee encampment for animals soaked with oil, rescue teams wash acrid goo from the matted feathers of brown pelicans and other seabirds and try to nurse them to health.

Wildlife rescue organizations have carried out this mercy mission after many oil spills in recent decades, hoping to save as many creatures as possible. Of all the efforts by all the workers and volunteers responding now to the nation's worst offshore spill, the attempts to cleanse these animals and set them free tug hardest on the heartstrings.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Rescuers call caring for oiled wildlife the right thing to do, even if critics say it's futile

They are cleaning and then holding them in a warehouse for two weeks the flying them to Tampa. I wonder how long they will be able to use Tampa as a release point.

As for the critics, They can shut the hell up.

To me cleaning the birds is At least a responsibility issue.
