WIRES Far South East has just released another pelican that came into care recently with a large fishhook embedded in the muscle under his wing.
He was anaesthetised and the fish hook removed by our local vets before going into Janine Green's enclosure for continuing treatment and assessment.
WIRES Far South East is having another rescue and immediate care course on Saturday, May 21 in Bega for all people interested in helping to rescue these magnificent animals.
To become a volunteer of WIRES go to www.wires.org.au and click onto the volunteer page.
The online workshop is completed at your own pace and then finished up with the face to face workshop in Bega on May 21.
