Brown Pelican ready for delisting?

The California subspecies of Brown Pelican might be healthy enough for removal from the federal endangered species list. The populations on the Atlantic Coast and in Florida and Alabama were removed from the endangered species list in 1985.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will begin a 12-month status review to look into that hypothesis, now that it completed a 90-day review of a petition submitted last December by the Endangered Species Recovery Council (which doesn't appear to have a functional website).

The service now seeks data about the subspecies from the public. Before July 24, you can send information to fws8pelicanpetition@fws.org or
