Dozens of young pelicans in the Florida Keys have been found starving and The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center has stepped in to help.
According to wildlife rehabilitator Amanda Margraves, the bird sanctuary, which is located in Tavernier, has seen a large influx of pelicans which are very thin and weak.
“We’re seeing at least double the amount of pelicans than normal this time of year,” Margraves told CBSMiami.com. “They’re all juveniles, very young coming in very emaciated.”
