Who We Are

Our mission is to protect the rights of all birds (pelicans in particular) so they may live out their lives free from harm due to human interference, specifically fishing line entanglement. 


Our main goal is to PREVENT fishing line entanglement at state, local and public fishing piers through INTERVENTION while also EDUCATING and RESCUING entangled birds as necessary.


We are here to be a friend to the pelicans.

Brown Pelicans have a lifespan of up to 40 years in the wild.

However, studies show only 30% of all pelicans will survive their first year


Sadly, only 2% of Pelicans will live to reach the age of ten years


 Fishing line entanglement also kills Herons, Egrets, Ibises, Cormorants and other seabirds.
