The Department of Fish and Wildlife Oil Spill Team is a key part of Washington State’s oil spill program and functions within three primary areas: Natural Resource Protection, Oiled Wildlife Rescue, and Natural Resource Damage Assessment.

The Spill Team provides technical expertise to the State’s oil spill planning and preparedness efforts, and is available round-the-clock to address the needs of fish and wildlife resources impacted by oil spills.  Spill Team members also work with other state and federal agencies, tribes, and other stakeholders to promote restoration of habitat impacted by oil spills.
Funding for the Spill Team comes from a portion of the state tax on petroleum imports.
