    Yeah, and it’s not the last one. There’s no safe offshore drilling whatsoever. By the way, pelicans need our help because of oil spill. Moreover, they are dying at the west coast too.
    There is only one way to save pelicans – to put them back on the endangered species list. Rescue centers need financial support from the state and Federal authorities. Our pelicans depend on it. There’s a petition on Change.org titled “Save U.S. pelicans”, and I’d love your support. You can sign the petition in less than 30 seconds by clicking the link below:
    Thanks so much for the help!
