The Port of Long Beach will donate $5,000 for the surgical and rehabilitative care of a California brown pelican found recently on the shoreline in Long Beach with a slashed pouch, a wound thought to be caused by someone with a knife or other sharp object.
Most people can tell the difference between a Mallard, Canada Goose, and a Mute Swan, but what about the myriad of other winged wonders that frequent the lakes, ponds, and wetlands of the City of Long Beach?
