Brown pelican population is recovering under help of Endangered Species Act

The state bird of Louisiana, the Brown Pelican, is being removed from the Endangered Species List.  This event is powerful proof that a healthy coast and strong environmental protections can benefit people and nature alike.

 The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the species has sufficiently recovered from the impact of DDT contamination compounded by continuing habitat loss to be taken off the list in areas where it is not already delisted. Populations along the Atlantic Coast, in Florida and Alabama were delisted in 1985.
