Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research (Tri-State) has organized a volunteer bike ride called Wheels for Wings that will start in May in San Francisco, California, and end on the eastern seaboard at Tri-State in Newark, Delaware. The ride will be completed by a single volunteer, Peter Wiswell, who has long been involved with marine insurance and pollution response activities.

Peter has worked with Ramboll’s Larry Malizzi, who specializes in spill planning, drills and response, NRDA, endangered species and habitat restoration, for over 25 years on such efforts, and also worked alongside Ramboll on the Deepwater Horizon response. Peter currently works for Global Risk Solutions, a key Ramboll client and teaming partner.

His journey across America will raise awareness for Tri-State’s contaminated wildlife efforts through the purchase of a new response vehicle and support the organization’s efforts to ensure the readiness of the best possible wildlife response capabilities.

Partnering with Tri-State in spill response

For over 10 years, Ramboll employees have worked closely with Tri-State to ensure our emergency response experts are prepared to supplement Tri-State, as needed, when a spill occurs. We have rosters of available experts by state who are trained in the Incident Command System (ICS) and Hazardous Waste Operator and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standards and participate in drills at Tri-State’s response facility. We also continuously collaborate with Tri-State, sharing experiences and knowledge related to ongoing spills to determine if there are impacts to wildlife – ultimately improving readiness and seamless teamwork when a spill occurs.

Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research

Tri-State is one of only a handful of organizations in North America that specializes in the treatment of oiled wildlife. Established in 1976, Tri-State has led, joined or consulted on 170+ oiled wildlife response efforts, including the Gulf of Mexico Spill in 2010. Tri-State provides oiled wildlife services from Canada to the Caribbean and is a member of the Global Oil Wildlife Response System project.
