I’ve been logging footage that we shot over the past few months in Morro Bay, Eureka, and Arcata, but my heart has been with the poor pelicans trying to survive and raise chicks despite the enormous, toxic, growing pool of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. The photo below, shot by local photographer Colin Gift, shows one of our own brown pelicans diving into clean, fish-filled Aquatic Park Cove last summer. I read yesterday that pelicans in the Gulf are “diving into oily water.” What a horrible image. Pelican Dreams will include footage of this historic oil-spill disaster. The footage is being shot for IBR, the seabird rescue center that took care of Gigi. IBR staff are now assisting rescue efforts in the Gulf states.
