One of The Ark's newest rescues is a White Pelican. We do not get many of these in! White pelicans are one of the largest birds in North America, with an average wingspan of 9 feet which is second only to the condor. With their wings tucked in they appear all white, bu...

The story of Penelope is one of true teamwork and genuine concern for a pelican who was badly entangled on the beach in Ponte Vedra. Even once Penelope was free, Celia and Joe brought mullet out to her on the beach and checked on her hourly until finally at midnight Pe...
