Saving Pelican #895
More than 7,000 birds were killed as a result of the April 2010 BP oil spill that spread throughout the Gulf of Mexico.  HBO Documentary Films presents the story of the effort to save the 895th surviving oiled pelican in Louisiana, showing how conservationists, government agencies and wildlife activists joined forces to preserve this one life.  Directed by Oscar nominee Irene Taylor Brodsky, SAVING PELICAN 895 tells the gripping story of "LA 895" from his rescue and recovery as an incapacitated juvenile bird with oil-slicked feathers through his ultimate maturation and release back into the wild.

Following the film, a question and answer period will follow featuring:
