Yesterday, a team from the Green Balkans Rescue Centre rescued a young Dalmatian pelican from the icy waters of 'Rozov Kladenets' Dam.

The helpless bird was spotted by local people who alerted our team. As soon as we received the signal, we went there.

Our friends from Dams and Cascades, 'Rozov Kladenets' Dam area, who provided a boat for the event, helped us to carry out the unsafe action.

After we chased it for a while, the bird was caught and taken to the outpatient clinic of the Green Balkans Rescue Centre.

There it was examined by the Centre's veterinarians, who found that the pelican had a problem in the elbow joint of the right wing.

So, the young bird is accommodated in the intensive care unit of the Centre and during the holidays it will be taken care of by our team and volunteers.
