Makes me think of my doomed, poor, pelicans in my Louisiana.

What a goofy beauty.

Not the first time the Louisiana Pelicans have been threatened.
DDT was their undoing in the late 1950's and early 60's.
Its the state bird so they brought in more from Florida and restarted the population they have now after it was wiped out .
Maybe after things settle down Belize can send some to begin again.

I remember when they were reintroduced in the 1980s. I didn't know it was DDT that killed them all. That seemed to be glossed over.
