Seeing pelicans skim along our shorelines is as expected in Florida as seeing our tides curl in and out. But what do you really know about them? How can the Brown Pelican crash into the water from high heights without getting a birdy headache, or breaking into pieces? From where do the White Pelicans come during the cool fall weather and to where do they return in the spring? How are these two Florida species alike and how are they different? Join us for a talk with Sensing Nature Wildlife Biologist Jeanne Murphy to gain a deeper understanding about our pelicans, including if their populations are stable, growing or in decline, as well as what each of us can do to guarantee their survival into the future.
This webinar is recommended for adults and families (suggested ages of 7 years old and up).
