From a release by Sagemont School, where they can afford to have media spinmeisters who don't focus all their energy on damage control:
He and his teacher, Vickie Stofsky, searched on Google to get ideas about what they could do to help save the birds. They came up with the plan to ask Oskar's classmates, friends and family members to donate bottles of Dawn dishwashing liquid which is known to be able to safely dissolve tar and oil from animals who get covered in the stuff. They planned to deliver the bottles to Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary located in Tampa (seabirdsanctuary.com). This is the largest wild bird hospital in the U.S. and it is one location where birds are to be brought in case they become drenched in the goo approaching the shoreline.
