A snowy egret isn't a rare bird. In fact, the snowy egret is one of the most common nesting birds in the rookery at High Island (no doubt the best known and most frequently visited rookery in the state). Yet in the late 1800s this bird almost disappeared from Texas. Market shooting for the millinery trade decimated their populations in the U.S. By the late 1880s, over 5 million birds were being killed each year for their feathers. President Theodore Roosevelt began protecting these rookeries by establishing Pelican Island in Florida as the first wildlife refuge by executive order in 1903, and protection would be extended to Texas colonies in years to come. The fact that High Island is owned and managed by Houston Audubon Society is apropos given the importance of the original Audubon societies in bringing a halt to the trade. Celebrate the fact that the snowy egret is not rare the next time you see one, and thank those early conservationists who ended the needless slaughter. Please consider liking this im ...
4 real...2 of my fav summer vacation spots - Grand Lucayan Resort and Pelican Bay Resort on grand bahama island. Totally relaxin!
Watching the island, I'd build a sling shot and ping a pelican! That's how it's done, and is tickle some fish, I'm a pale bear grylls
In a bid to catch a pelican for food, island plonker (with swastika tattoo) throws a rock at the whole flock.
Anyone see the island with bear grylls? Crocodile is a tasty meat, if i were there I'd go *** for leather to nab a pelican
This guy on the island is actually retarded, he broke his knuckle throwing a rock at a pelican
I don't like that old police guy on the island, he'd be first one I'd eat after failing to lasso a pelican
Watching The Island. I'd well have caught something to eat by now. I'd be eating pelican every night.
The Island with Bear Grylls is too good! Who wouldn't want to watch three guys hunt a pelican & stingray to feed themselves?! Quality stuff.
Escaping from Prison--Alligators Yesterday I spent several hours on a boat in the Pearl River Delta and Swamps, a lovely time full of turtles, alligators, snakes, egrets and herons, and Prothonotary Warblers (with their golden yellow against the dark greens of the trees). At one place, the alligators are used to people, and circle the boat to be fed...and leap out of the water, like dolphins or Killer Whales, to take food on a stick. We have the image of dungeons, with their thick walls, surrounded by moats full of leeches and unimaginable creatures. Those images have sources in reality. At Angola Prison, 50 miles or so upriver from Baton Rouge, the prison is surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi River and its swamps, a watery world full of alligators and poisonous snakes. Step back and look at topographic maps of the area.it is a sea of swamps, through which the river flows. At the Prison Museum is a picture of three huge Alligators--14 feet long or more--killed around the Prison. It is a strong d ...
Bothersome to me is the fact that a lot of the old photos of Barbados that I've posted have disappeared from my F/B page; is one not allowed to post these photos? I especially miss the one of the donkey cart and of Pelican Island.
There's a place called Pelican Island in Barbados. It has shops with everything handmade; jewellery, furniture, paintings, glass. Loved it.

Texas City "Y" Response Unified Command logo FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DATE: March 25, 2014 9:20:03 PM CDT Update 7: Texas City "Y" incident response cleanup continues Preparation for mitigating offshore oil impacts begin Texas City, Texas — The Coast Guard continues clean up operations in the Port of Houston/Galveston after having authorized limited marine traffic in the safety zone for commercial ship traffic, Tuesday. The Port Coordination Team is prioritizing ships for transit through the channel. Barges are being allowed to transit through the Houston Ship Channel and on the Intracoastal Waterway, after assessment teams deemed the channel clear. Cleanup efforts focused heavily on the environmentally sensitive lagoon area of East Beach Tuesday. Other areas where significant amounts of oil were recovered include Big Reef, Pelican Island and the Texas City *** Weather conditions in the Port of Houston/Galveston pushed oil 12 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico, and into a southwesterly direction along the . ...
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) personnel are continuing to look for wildlife affected following the Saturday oil spill in the Houston Ship Channel. As of Sunday, three birds were taken to a private wildlife rehabilitation service field station for rehabilitation and three birds were found dead. More oiled birds are expected to be found. Monday, teams of state and federal biologists were checking eastern Galveston Island, Pelican Island and the Bolivar peninsula looking for other affected wildlife. According to TPWD personnel on the scene, Bolivar Flats is currently a potential hotspot, since it is a significant refuge for birds. Expectations are that oiled birds will fly there and with decreasing temperatures, more impact on birds is expected. High tides could impact further as habitats become inundated. In addition to the field work underway, TPWD staff are participating in the incident command operation in Texas City and assisting with response activities for reported impacted wildlife. How ...
If anyone wants to walk to Pelican Island, now is the time. The river is way low and the river bed is exposed.
Does anyone have more information on the rail line that ran all the way down from Bay Head terminus to Seaside and maybe to Toms Rover? As a kid I've always wondered about the arrow-straight parallel Rte. 35 sections that are way too big for the area's traffic and the interesting routes south of Ortley Beach and bridge off Pelican Island. I've seen some older maps without much detail.
A little Pelican Island origin history: Mathis and Hague Lieut. Urge State to Give Away Both Shores of Road Fill New Jersey Courier July 20, 1928 State Board of Commerce divide four to four on Zeller’s application Trenton, July 17. – Differences of opinion among the members of the state board of commerce and navigation as to the wisdom of granting the application of George C. Zeller of Bordentown, for permission to fill in Pelican Island, Barnegat bay near Seaside Heights, developed at the meeting of the board here yesterday.

Good Morning Richards Bay Hope you will enjoy the splendid day ahead. It is suppose to a smiling warm sunny day, but when one look at dawn reluctant to brake one wonders if fishing is an option even today is a pretty good fishing day. The moon is on a Waning Crescent Best Times: 06h00 to 09h00 19h00 to 22h00 For those still seeking the cuddly comforts of warm soft bed you can avoid the morning luck at Alkant Strand. The evenings should pack the short pier but never forget the T Jetty and Palm beach area. Take your live shads to the Commercial Pier or Pelican Island and slide them into the deep channel. You have until 22h00 to use as an excuse not to raise like a loaf of bread in front of the TV. For the lazy bums that needs an excuse to float around as wanna bees you can do that between 12h00 and 14h30 above the steel Bridge. These times will give you second best opportunity to have a legal excuse not to mow the lawn or clean the garage. Any way if you feel Fishing in Richards bay have become boring then ...

Took a float plane over to Pelican.the 12 year old pilot (ha) was great!!! When we spotted a pod of whales, he flew over multiple times and low enough for me to see the amazing show!!! Pelican is in a fijord; the cliffs drop down into the ocean; there are waterfalls everywhere; I could hear them roar as I paddled my kayak over to third island. I got to fish in a salmon derby...didn't catch much but had a great time on the water! The entire town of Pelican is on stilts; there is a boardwalk all around the town. It is so small that the people in town knew what I do for a living, so when there was a trauma at 10 o'clock at night, they knocked on my door to come and help. Got to bed at 2AM. The only options for transport out of there are the coast guard or a float plane.luckily the patient survived. On the way back to Kake, we landed in the ocean at Elfin Cove, then tethered to a fishing vessel to load some tourists and their 14 coolers full of salmon. *** tourists! Oh ya, I am a local.
Tonight is karaoke night at the Pelican Lounge! Come by and have a few while getting your island sing song time in!
Spent a fabulous two days with my Sis. We spent yesterday at the beach. I will tell you that the water was warm as can be. We were pounded by waves and I'm red as a beet. We spent the night at their cottage and it was a wild night of thunder and lightning. But today woke up bright and shiny. I spent today escorting my Sis and my wife on their day of shopping in South Port and here on Oak Island. OH OH I finally got my pictures of pelicans last night. They fly in formation up and down the beach. Tomorrow we move on (sadly) to Durham and the home of the Blue Devils.
Seems the rain just does not want to end in Minnesota. Overcast, rainy and bugs.where is the fun in that? It was good to see our Canadian friends this past weekend and share some laughs, stories and good food. Thinking about going up there for Keltic Festival in Thunder Bay this July. Would be fun, it it doesn't RAIN. Hope your day is going better. I am having South Padre Island withdrawals right now and it isn't pretty!

A Couple of weeks ago I was asked to leave your establishment because i was wearing my US Military Vets M/C vest. The way you approached me and "stated take your vest off or leave" was uncalled for. I, as well as ALL the members of my club are honorably discharged Military Vets. We take pride in our vest just like we did with our Uniforms!!! If you do not want Veterans in your club then go ahead and post a sign saying so! I have and will continue to put out the word about your establishment. As well as informing the Naval Air Station Corpus about this. We do live in a FREE Country where the Constitution states we have Freedom of Speach as well as freedom to express ourselves. You not being from this country do not seem to understand this yet you come to this country for a better way of life and decide to try and push your OWNERSHIP weight around on the people who defended this country and also LIBERATED your own.

Which State Wins the Cup?   The Gulf of Mexico, United States—The Gulf Cup Blue Marlin Shootout pits not only the best fishing teams in the region against one another but also the associated marinas and even the states of the Gulf Coast in a new one-day, winner-take-all event to be held on the Fourth of July. At stake is a year’s worth of bragging rights in addition to significant prize money based on the number of participating boats.      The competition will be twofold: the team with the largest blue marlin takes home the cash but the city, state and even the weigh station that weighs the winning fish will take home the prestigious Gulf Cup trophy and bragging rights for the next twelve months. Imagine the tourism departments in each state printing the headlines the following day that the state of Texas (or Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi or Florida) has won the prestigious Gulf Cup, proving that the billfishing off their shores is indeed the best in the Gulf of Mexico.   The fishing boundarie ...
As a young Politician in the arena of Giants, i have come to learn that nothing is always what it seems. I have also learned that in the land of the blind, the one eye man is king. But the greatest lesson is the one of consistancy. It has always been and will continue to be my desire to see the people of this great country gain the opportunities that are over due be presented for their benefit. And so i will continue to champion those benefits that our people have been crying out for from before i was born. My method at times some may not understand, seemingly to many not the normal political approach but i am not the normal politician, i was voted in to serve the people and to look out for their needs, that is why when the pelican works were in need, i not only stood by their side while facing pressure from my own party i brought the Law to Parliament in making sure that no other employees on this island will have face the same situation. While there was a debate on how much to increase the pension for o ...

Awesome day! Went to Pelican Island instead of Disappearing Island. Saw thousands of fiddler crabs (The kids named the biggest one Mr. Crabs) ... found some sand dollars And a couple of dolphins were swimming near us tooWe went out to dinner at Our Deck Down Under and DQ for a blizzard !
Witnessed one guy in the water dragging a rolled-up net hanging in the water from a float, and 3 guys on jet skis offering support if the snorkeler found any bait fish. This site, Kalli's Reef is where I have seen the fishermen in the past surround huge schools of baitfish and CATCH EVERYONE of them with their nets. Most likely the "fishermen' were the ones from Curacao that earlier in the week were LEGALLY catching bait fish along Bonaire's shore. They are not buying them from the Bonairean fishermen, they are physically catching the bait fish themselves. I know it is legal, from what Ramon tells us, but Curacao is a foreign country now, and don't we have restrictions on such taking of our resources?
HELLO WORLD TRES PELICANOS DIVE CENTER -UPDATE We have received another fine review on Trip Advisor. The total reviews is now up to 44 and we are rated of activities out of 185 for Cozumel. I believe that number really says a lot on how our business has grown in less than one year. All because of our wonderful Pelican clients who have come to visit and dive with us. Their terrific reviews have jumped us past many of the more established dive shops on the Island. Certainly our number of 44 reviews is less than the more established shops, but still it shows that we have become a serious contender in the local dive industry As I read the reviews it becomes very clear as to why we continue to get five star reviews. Servando, the Skinny Shark and Jeanie Buscher. These three items are what make us better than the rest. Jeanie with her experience in the industry and her booking skills are second only to the dedication and effort that she puts in. Her rapid email reply's to clients are often noted by the review . ...

Okay Friends and Family we are having a boat naming contest. I'm in the midst of buying a boat and I need a name for the Coast Guard Registry. Remember, I'm a Jimmy Buffett loving Texas Boy so I'm thinking along those lines. There will be a grand prize of I pick your suggestion or even the one one that I like the most. I'm looking for something that will make people think (no obvious names like Margaritaville) come on, bring on the good stuff. I'm also open to Willie or Stevie Ray names. Let's get creative, I know y'all can do it.
My friends Yvonne, Holly, and their and my kids plus my friend Ashley all went Blue Pelican Marina and went on a boat ride to help clean up the island. Just got back.

Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment Natural Resource Trustees to Hold Public Meetings on Gulf of Mexico Restoration Trustees announce new scoping process for early restoration GULF COAST (June 4, 2013) — The Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Trustees (Trustees) for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill today announced new opportunities for the public to engage in the early restoration process. In a Notice of Intent published today, the Trustees announced plans to prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement, or PEIS, to evaluate the potential environmental effects of general types of early restoration actions, as well as specific projects including those that the Trustees intend to propose in the Phase III Draft Early Restoration Plan as announced in the Federal Register on May 6, 2013.

What’s your favorite place to visit during your family’s Carolina Beach vacation?
HELLO WORLD Summer has finally arrived in Fairbanks Alaska. A week of 82 degrees was capped off with a day of 84. I loved it, but everyone else just wilted in the heat. The saving grace is that we have no humidity here in Fairbanks. Not so in Cozumel, as the town was inundated with rain this past week. A tropical depression stalled over the Island. The very hot humid days turned into tropical rains. I heard that six inched fell one day/night with thunder and lightning. Not surprisingly, the town has slowed with both diving and tourism. Cruise ship traffic is down (couldn't be because of all the recent fires on board). However TRES PELICANOS is alive and well. Pony is manning the shop and Servando is taking care of divers though they are infrequent during this slow spell. Jeanie and Mike are back in the USA loving grand children and hating the hot humid weather and flooding. They like me here in Alaska, arrived back in the US to find colder than normal temperatures that turned into monsoons. Before the la ...
I'm making these public so they can be shared if you'd like, because it makes me sick to know this bird was left without any help. The kids and I stopped at the Skyway Bridge rest area for a little break between doctor appointments. As we walked we saw this pelican who didn't move at all, we then noticed the hook in its wing and the fishing line wrapped around it. I called 911 and asked them if the could call Fish and Wildlife and she told me "No, and the bird sanctuary is closed now." but she did connected me else where who told me not to waste my breath and she connected me to someone's voice mail. I saw two older men with their wives looking for shells so I asked them if they had a knife and if they would help. They were wonderful and wanted to help but they rushed the bird and scared it. The pelican stood up and you could see it had more fishing line with fishing weights on it's legs. The pelican snapped at us and started floating in the water. 1. My family loves to fish, but don't just leave your fis ...

I know my friends in Galveston mean well when you have a balloon release in honor of a lost loved one.but please consider what happens to the balloons after they fall from the sky. There is a very good chance that they will be eaten by a sea turtle or another sea creature that mistakes it as a jelly fish. I have personally toured the sea turtle rescue lab on Pelican Island and seen turtles that have had plastic removed from their stomaches and near death. Please no more balloon releases in Galveston. Our loved ones would not want to be honored in that way. How about planting a tree or throwing roses in the ocean instead. If anyone wants to visit the sea turtle rehab let me know and I will post the number. Thanks from our sea turtles!!!

Nature Trails with Bird Watching Sri Lanka is a true paradise for bird lovers and Ornithologists and probably the best place in the world to watch birds. Sri Lanka has a total list of over 430 species of birds. Of these, 233 are resident and these include the most important 26 species that are recognized as endemic to the country. Most of the resident species are shared with the Asian mainland. Although a small island, Sri Lanka's environment ranges from wet to dry zone, forest to jungle, and hill country to low lands, there's no end to the fascinating locations in which to observe such a large array of birds. Most of the endemic birds, such as the striking Red-faced Malkoha & Green billed Coucal are restricted to the wet zone, while birds such as the Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush and the Yellow-eared Bulbul reside in the hill country. Others, like the brilliantly plumaged Junglefowl, and the shy Brown-capped Babbler can be found in forests and sanctuaries throughout the island. Most of the endemic birds, su ...
Did 40 miles alongside the Mississippi river today!!! I love my new bike!! I ate 1,100 bugs, jumped over a pipeline, saw a pelican eat the biggest fish I have ever seen in the Mississippi and got attacked by birds. What a magical time!!!
Gregor today was trying to think of a place and said "is it Pelican Island?" When he meant Flamingo Land. Brilliant, nearly burst ear drums in the car with my hearty laughter.

I don't think a lot of people realize this, but when Venice was being built in the 1920's, this area was for the most extreme, wealthiest of people. In today's currency, the only people who bought property and lived here were equivalent to millionaires many times over. Venice was a rich-people's Mecca. It was an all-inclusive paradise and highly defended against anyone who was not filthy rich.

GOD's CREATURES The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit. All education should be directed toward the refinement of the individual's sensibilities in relation not only to one's fellow humans everywhere, but to all things whatsoever." ~Ashley Montague "We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace." ~Albert Schweitzer, The Philosophy of Civilization Happy Friday Everyone.

Hey this could be full on stupid. I plan on doing a dive just off the shore at bird island at the milk river ridge. I want to come up underneath them filming and take photos from the middle of the flock. I've been around sharks and stingrays. Honestly the idea of being attacked underwater or at the surface by a pelican or a goose is much more frightening. Should be some great video? Any family or friends want to join me? This stunt has Nick Demas written all over it. Don't let me down Nick. If I can't count on nephews who can I count on?

There's a plane. Crash lands on an abandoned island. Everyone dies except 2 people. Guy agrees to feed Guy So Guy roams around the island and makes pelican sandwiches for guy For 8 months they've been stranded on that island and eating pelican sandwiches. The next month, they get rescued. The two guys go their separate ways. Guy who's been fed pelican sandiwiches for 9 months decides to go to a resturant and just for old time sake he orders a pelican sandwich. Soon after he ate the pelican sandwich, he kills himself. ( Why does he kill himself soon right after he hate the pelican sandwich? )

DIPOA News: Pelican Report 16 February 4, 2013 Judging from the lengthy description of a daunting process to gather proposals or RFPs (Request for Proposals) posted on the DIPOA website, it would appear that the Board of Directors of the Dauphin Island Property Owners Association has decided to gear up for a long-term, nationwide search to obtain a suitable 99-year lease contract with a professional golf management entity and/or developer. The process laid out in the document, “Potential Approach: Request for Proposals,” would, if rigorously pursued, leave no stone, even moss-covered ones, unturned. Yet, as far as I know, the proposed RFP Committee, alluded to in the document, still awaits its incarnation. I wonder why? Could it be that Board is having second thoughts about going down the path indicated by that document, namely a path that would lead, were it successful, to a professional golf management entity and/or developer? Translated that would mean leasing the golf-course property to a large co ...

From my new book "Everything You Know About Violence Is Wrong"...

In contrast, if you don't take the hint, the violence will be far more explosive and intense.

First we would like to say WE ARE NOT CLOSING! Due to limited resources,the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is no longer able to accept additional birds requiring rehabiliation. We will be focusing on the care and completion of the rehabilitation process for the birds we currently have on property. Until our funds improve we can no longer activity rescue any birds. We will concentrate on taking care of the long term crippled residence on site. We would also like to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to our staff,volunteers, and especially our supporters for everything they do. The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary will still be open 7 days a week for visitors. Also, the gift shop will be open 7days a week. Thank you again from all of us at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary.

I'm not sure riding a bull moose is smart but I'll leave it to others to determine "cool." I will say this man is another of my true conservation heroes. When he created Pelican Island, it was the first time anywhere in the world, that public land was set aside solely for benefit of wildlife, a revolutionary idea. Today your National Wildlife Refuge System protects over 95 million acres of the best of the best. Thanks TR, your vision is a gift to all Americans beyond estimation.

In 1958 a wounded pelican was found off the coast of Mykonos shore by a local fisherman. The pelican was nursed to health and remained on the island supported by locals. It soon adopted the name “Petros”. To great disappointment by locals and tourists alike, Petros was hit by a car on 2 December 1985 and failed to recover. Subsequently, three new pelicans reside around the main town of Mykonos. One, honorifically, was given the name Petros.[2] References

All four utility companies for Pelican Island have finished their testing and residents for all of Pelican Island may move back home beginning 8:00 am Thursday, December 20th. Mayor Tom Kelaher stated that the Township was waiting on NJ Natural Gas to reset the meters, which they have, and on NJ American Water to complete their water testing. "The water company has completed their flushing, as well as their chlorine and bacteriological testing," Kelaher said, "so now the water restrictions have been lifted." Kelaher added, "We are delighted that Pelican Island residents can move back home earlier than we anticipated. They are the first Toms River residents from the barrier island to be able to do so. We are looking at getting the Northern Beach area residents in next. We will be updating our website as often as we hear news from the utility companies."

***SEASIDE PARK & South Seaside Park CLOSED TOMORROW (UPDATE)*** Due to gas leaks, New Jersey Natural Gas is experiencing delays in re-pressurizing its system in Seaside Park, according to Seaside Park Police Department Detective Chris Bonner. Seaside Park and South Seaside Park, which were both closed today, will also be restricted tomorrow, Det. Bonner says, who told us last night that this issue "isn't a huge problem with the gas system, or a huge delay." Rather, NJNG requires an extra day or two to address the unanticipated issues, he said. Pelican Island will be open, according to the Berkeley Township Police Department. Seaside Park and South Seaside are the ONLY portions of the barrier island that will be closed.
Here is today’s update on our service restoration for the storm-damaged portions of our system: While re-introducing natural gas to the section of its system that serves Sampson Avenue in Seaside Heights to J Street in Seaside Park, including Pelican Island, New Jersey Natural Gas experienced anomalies that must be addressed before re-pressurization can be complete. Crews will continue working in this section to address the anomalies and restore natural gas to the main. If all goes well, we expect to complete work in this section later today, and begin the re-introduction of natural gas to the last section of the Seaside peninsula, from 1st Street to 24th Avenue in Seaside Park, on Saturday. Once we re-introduce natural gas to this section, our traffic impacts on the peninsula will be completed. A total of 3,355 homes on the peninsula now have natural gas to their meters. We have completed 1,410 meter rebuilds in Normandy Beach and Lavallette so far, and expect to complete this section by the end of the ...
There will be no access to the Seaside Park tomorrow as there were many problems with the gas lines in Pelican Island and Seaside Heights. They were unable to pressurize the gas lines.
**Seaside Heights ALSO CLOSED ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14** From Official Borough Website Late Tonight: December 13, 2012 We have just received notification from NJ Natural Gas that the re-pressurization of gas lines in the Pelican Island section of the barrier island was not successfully completed today. Therefore, the barrier island will not be open to vehicle access on Friday, December 14. It is anticipated that the island will be reopened on Saturday, December 15th.

**WEEKEND ACCESS INFO AND TOWN OFFICE HOURS** 12/7/2012 To the best of my knowledge and research, the southern half of the island weekend access is as stated earlier in the week: Northern Beaches (North of Lavallette but south of Mantoloking & Bay Head) are closed. Ortley, Lavallette, Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, Pelican Island, Midway Beach, etc. all OPEN! Seaside Heights and Seaside Park have BOTH updated their web pages to extend daily access hours from 7am-4pm. The 4pm curfew is a FIRM deadline. The other towns have not yet commented on access hours, so I'm not sure if they'll let you in at 7am or not. Plan accordingly for delays. Seaside Park has also updated their website to have access CLOSED on December 13 & 14. See below for Lavallette office hours on the weekend.

North Bay Ave looks like a TORNADO went threw, really bad! WHAT A DAY!!! SO SAD
