Pelicans: Outback Nomads
The Australian pelican sees the entire Australian continent as its home, its riverbeds as road maps and its ephemeral lakes as immeasurably important chances to breed. They come in tens of thousands, mysteriously arriving just as fish stocks reach their pinnacle. No other animal personifies the dynamic nature of these ephemeral lakes as does the pelican and that is precisely why Dr. Greg Johnston is here. To literally dig into the past and unravel the long-standing ‘affair’ between the lakes and their transient devoted tenants.
