A lot of thought was put into plant selection and exhibit design to recreate the birds’ natural environment. Simulated surf created by a wave machine prevents the buildup of algae. The waves never fail to amuse our great white pelicans!
The birds in the aviary have further enhanced the specially-constructed breeding platforms with twigs and other nesting material. Who knows, you may even glimpse little nestlings peeking out from their nest during breeding season!
