Accidental oil spills, including oil tanker spills, non-tanker ship spills, pipelines, oil production platforms and tank farms, may cause serious problems for coastal and marine wildlife, especially birds, mammals and reptiles. On a worldwide scale, oiled wildlife incidents occur less frequently than oil spill incidents, simply because not every oil spill causes a wildlife problem. However, if a wildlife problem does occur as a consequence of the oil spill incident, the success of oiled wildlife rehabilitation, and an adequate assessment of environmental impacts, will depend on a comprehensive wildlife response plan.
