This Pelican Desperately Needs Help. What These Brave Men Do Next Is A True Act Of Kindness

Unfortunately, fishing line has been carelessly discarded into the sea for far too long. Once in the ocean, it is not only a threat to sea creatures, but also to pelicans like the one in this video. The most common areas where it is a massive hazard includes along shorelines, under public docks, and tangled in rocks and brush. Birds are in danger of being caught in wire at any of these locations, which can lead to injuries, drowning, and other major threats. In order to avoid these dangers, only fish in authorized spots, where the risk of line tangling is little to none. Also, make sure to use proper fishing line to reduce the likelihood of breakage. Most importantly, leave nothing behind but footprints whenever you visit nature.
