Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary helping Pelicans

Pelicans #3, 4& 5 so why so many pelicans?

When the fish go deep to escape the cold weather, the pelicans can’t dive down to reach them and wind up going hungry. The longer the cold snap lasts, the less food they get to eat, and the inexperienced juveniles are the first to suffer badly and not make it. We already have 3 adults and 1 juvenile brought in that show signs of frostbite in their pouches from the cold, and are very thin and weak. We warm them up, give them medicine

| FirstRefuge – Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge – Est. 1903.

“Pelican Island acquired its fame at the turn of the century from the wildlife photographers and naturalists who visited the area.  Many of these people were disturbed by the slaughter of countless pelicans, herons, egrets, and other birds by plume hunters.  A local resident, Paul Kroegel, who cared about the pelicans on the island became the staunch protector and enlisted the support of noted ornithologists, such as Frank Chapman, who helped establish the Audubon Societies” – See more at: http://firstrefuge.org/our-refuge/history/#sthash.T9Qy0YPX.dpuf

“Wild beasts and birds are by right not the property merely of the people who are alive today, but the property of unknown generations, whose belongings we have no right to squander.” – President Theodore Roosevelt –
