The HELCOM Expert Group on Wildlife Response (EG Wildlife) works to strengthen the cooperation between HELCOM Contracting Parties in the field of oiled wildlife response. It acts as a forum for the exchange of information on progress and best practices, and facilitates the creation of joint standards and cross-border cooperation in oiled wildlife response. Where possible, it also facilitates the training of national experts and exchange of training materials.

Since January 2022, EG Wildlife has incorporated all functions of the former HELCOM Expert Working Group on Oiled Wildlife Response (EWG OWR).
