Parish President: “Clean up crews stomping eggs” of brown pelicans; Asks HSUS to help


Louisiana cleanup crews trampled pelican nests, official says, CNN, June 16, 2010:

In one picture released by the parish, a plastic bag was on top of a nest containing broken speckled eggs. ...Nungesser met with the Humane Society of the United States and asked it to work with contractors who are cleaning the birds to come up with a better way to enlist the help of volunteers, the parish said. ...

"The people BP sent out to clean up oil trampled the nesting grounds of brown pelicans and other birds," he said. "Pelicans just came off the endangered species list in November of last year. They already have the oil affecting their population during their reproduction time, now we have the so-called clean up crews stomping eggs.

"The lack of urgency and general disregard for Louisiana's wetlands and wildlife is enough to make you sick," he said.
