An interview with Jean Hains :: Oiled Bird Rescue Centre

Twenty years after the Sea Empress oil disaster that devastated the Pembrokeshire coast, its islands and its wildlife, I return to speak to Jean Hains at The Oiled Bird Rescue Centre who recollects that time and her work. At 91, she now dedicates endless hours helping the numerous manx shearwaters that are blown in-land every autumn to recover before releasing them back on their journey to South America. In a touching moment, Jean recalls a young Charlie Hamilton James coming to volunteer.

 

I am delighted that this video was added to the Inspiring Environmental Initiatives group on Vimeo.

Seeking Sanctuary

 

In a world where human activity poses an ever-increasing threat, St. Joseph’s Atoll is one of the few places left for sharks to take refuge.

 

After three years of tracking and studying the local sharks, marine biologist, Ornella Weideli, sheds light on how two different species have come to thrive in this constantly changing habitat.

 

Join the Save Our Seas research team and discover a rare ecosystem bursting with life. Then see how every inhabitant is at the mercy of the lagoon. When the tide changes, is this sanctuary really safe?
