Background information and definitions
If an oil spill has the potential to affect marine and freshwater mammals and there is sufficient warning, it may be possible to temporarily relocate mammals away from the danger. However, this may be expensive and there is the risk that relocated mammals will not be able to return to the original site and/or may have a negative impact on native populations. Some mammals may also attempt to return before clean-up operations are complete.
