Abstract:

Following the Exxon Valdez incident, the Clean Seas oil spill cooperative received numerous requests for additional information on oil spill response procedures from local educational institutions. In response, Clean Seas undertook the development of educational package which could be sent to schools. This package was designed to provide more information on Clean Seas, the causes of and how to prevent oil spills and how the equipment used to recover oil is designed to work.
