Q - How do I report an oil spill (even a small one in a ditch or stream)?

Call 1-800-663-3456 – Hotline staff will notify either provincial or federal government agencies (Ministry of Environment, Coast Guard, Environment Canada) depending on location and species of wildlife involved; if you do not see a clean-up response within 24-48 hours, call again as the frequency of reports will increase the likelihood of response. Never attempt to wash a wild animal impacted by oil or other pollution yourself – always contact a professional wildlife rehabilitator. On Vancouver Island, call BC SPCA Wild ARC at 250-478-9453. In the Lower Mainland, call Wildlife Rescue Association of BC at 604-526-7275.
