In November 2009, after decades of preservation and repopulation efforts, the brown pelican─Louisiana's state bird─was removed from the endangered species list. Five months later, the Deepwater Horizon rig blew and the brown pelican was imperiled once again. Tireless conservationists worked over the ensuing months to rescue 894 of the oiled birds, and the odyssey of their 895th charge, from his recovery to his release back to the wild, is memorably chronicled here. 39 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
