Captain’s Log: Brown Pelican Takes Flight from Endangered List

Bentwing, an ubiquitous presence at the Santa Barbara Harbor, and his fellow California brown pelicans have been delisted as endangered species. Bentwing is the hero of a series of children’s books written by Noozhawk columnist Capt. David Bacon. The books are being illustrated and will hopefully be published soon.

Chalk up another success for wildlife managers and researchers. At its Feb. 5 meeting, the California Fish and Game Commission voted unanimously to remove the California brown pelican from the state endangered species list. This is the first time the commission has ever voted to delist an endangered species as a result of its recovery.
