Brown Pelican Roost Site Creation, Protection, and Enhancement Projects
Projects in this category will restore critical, nonbreeding pelican habitat by
enhancing, creating, and protecting coastal roosts along the central California
mainland. In 2004, the trustees began implementing a pilot cooperative project
with the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge to enhance brown pelican
roosting opportunities at the San Diego Bay saltworks. The trustees will be
working with the refuge to develop and install artificial roosting sites for
brown pelicans. Following the successful implementation of this pilot project,
the trustees will explore other potential roosting habitats for enhancement.
