Oiled pelicans inundate the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center
Last Thursday an oiled Brown Pelican was spotted in Crescent City. This turned out to be just one of many birds that were contaminated by fish oil from open scrap bins at the fish-cleaning station.
We currently are caring for 23 pelicans and 2 gulls with more on the way. We have already spent more than 5% of our yearly budget in the last week, and that does not include food. We are sorely in need of monetary donations, as well as other items. A list of what is needed is available on our website, as well as a running commentary of our daily activities.
