Pelican Man - A Video Documentary (NTSC)
Spotbilled pelicans have been coming to breed in the village of Kokkare Bellur in Southern India for hundreds of years. However, numbers are falling drastically all over South Asia and the bird is now a candidate for the endangered species list. This 60 minute documentary explores the reasons for this decline and charts the ups and downs in a remarkable partnership between a dedicated environmentalist and the local community as they attempt to reverse the decline of the pelicans at Kokkare Bellur.
