Just a few weeks ago, we released two other rehabilitated White Pelicans at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in the San Fernando Valley (see photo below). One of these birds had been tangled in fishing line and was successfully rescued thanks to the teamwork of many individuals and organizations. Learn more about these birds here.
