Pelican Beakon

by Robert Neff

The Pelican Beakon is the pelican newspaper for pelicans, by pelicans and their one human staff photographer.

Established on October 12, 2014 in St. Petersburg, the Pelican Beakon reports on pelicans, waterbirds, shorebirds, news, weather, food, and lifestyle, and much more. There is an underlying environmental, conservation, education, and travel and tourism message.

This book recaps several of the top stories over the years. This is book series telling stories such as the loss of old Florida and its Seafood Shacks, "Yellow Shoes" the snowy egret who was a grouper thief, how Lois founded pelican yoga, tour of the rookeries, the Pelican March on Pass-a-Grille, pelican yoga in the Caribbean, and how birds species coexist with humans.

A full web site will be ready this Fall.

#‎PelicanYoga‬ knows which rehab centers and nursing homes are Tampa Bay's best! That's why they recommend Clearwater Marina Aquarium. It's a top hospital too! Have two friends, white pelicans named Ricky and Lucy, who know Winter the Dolphin. They get the inside scope on Winter and new friend Hope. Plus, they have made friends with otters and sea turtles. Watch as they sneak in care packages! Rumor is they will start a yoga class to help with rehab.
