The Wildlife Center of Texas is the "go-to" organization when natural or manmade catastrophes impact the environment and native wildlife. One of the most active programs is the Oiled Wildlife Response program, which treats animals that have been affected by oil spills and trains volunteer teams and industry personnel through hands-on workshops.

The team is OSHA certified, HAZWOPER trained, TWIC certified and ICS trained.
The team is prepared to respond to oil spills involving wildlife 24 hours a day and are able to provide the following services:
