Pelican with fish hook injuries

Each year, International Bird Rescue’s rehabilitation centers in California treat hundreds of Brown Pelicans. About 40% of these birds brought to us suffer from fishing tackle-related injuries.

Here, our Los Angeles center staff remove multiple hooks from an adult pelican. (Viewer discretion is advised.)

We depend upon your support to help these birds. Find out more at birdrescue.org/donate.
