One day I was walking on the beach and I saw a bird covered in oil and couldn't get out.
I tried to help him but he was scared at first. Soon he realized I wanted to help him.
After I had got him I wanted to clean the oil off. So I did some research and found the proper way to clean him.
I had called a wild animal caring center to let them know my situation. They said I should drop off the bird to them soon.
What causes this to happen is when an oil spill or leak happens in the ocean and birds go into the oil and get stuck.
I spoke with the wild animal care staff and told me ways to prevent what had happened. I asked about anything like i could do on weekends to help. They gave me a list about different activities I could do. I just am glad I saved at least one birds life.
