Island, in the north arm of Great Salt Lake, is home to one of the
largest North American breeding colonies of American White Pelicans. In
2017, Great Salt Lake Institute students began helping the Utah Division
of Wildlife Resources with research on these charismatic birds.The
first phase of the project was to install a PELIcam on Gunnison Island
to help observe pelican behavior during the breeding season.
PELIcam is the Project in Education and Longitudinal Investigation of American White Pelicans on Gunnison Island.
