Rehabilitated pelicans from Refugio Spill Incident to be released at Goleta Beach, Friday at 1:00 p.m.

West end of Goleta Beach, Santa Barbara County (side closest to UCSB)
Special Notes:
  • First priority is the health and safety of the birds and the people transporting them.
  • A staging location has been identified for photo and video that accommodates the bird safety needs but also close proximity for getting images.
  • We will release the birds in three sets to allow multiple opportunities to get good shots.
  • For the safety of the birds, no closeups are permitted. We encourage the use of a telephoto lens.
