VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Thirty-six rehabilitated brown pelicans were released in Virginia Beach Sunday.
The birds suffered frost bite and other injuries this winter.
A total of 50 were saved. The ones that were not released still need more time to recover.
The Brown Pelican was once nearly extinct but has made a come back.
Lisa Barlow spent the last few months getting the pelicans ready for the release.
"Seeing them go is the most awe inspiring thing that I can have next to...next to nothing," said Barlow. "To take in 50 birds and to be able to release 36 of them right now is just amazing that we were able to help them."
Barlow is not sure when the rest will be ready.
