Update on the Pelican Aviary Project

First Brown Pelican in the newly renovated Pelican AviaryWe’re pleased to announce that finishing touches are underway for the renovated pelican aviary at the San Francisco Oiled Bird Care and Education Center in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thanks to your generous support, we’ve even begun to move a small number of birds into this 100-foot-long aviary — a crucial large space where pelicans and other birds have room to fly before they are considered for release back into the wild.

This spring, 180 donors helped us to raise $16,225 through Indiegogo. Together, with local grants from the Solano County Fish and Wildlife Propagation Fund and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network, we were able to afford much-needed repairs to this enclosure.

We are currently planning a community event — an aviary re-dedication, if you will — and will be in touch with the details. We’d love to have you stop by!
