They rescued forty birds in December and another twenty since the first of the year. It's not clear why so many birds are getting sick.
Rescuers say they're being found in unusual places, thin and disoriented.
It costs between $500 and $1,000 to rehabilitate a sick pelican.
Anyone who finds an injured or sick pelican should place it in a cardboard box with a towel at the bottom. Keep it warm and don't feed it.
To reach a rescuer to pick up the bird, call 800-39-WHALE.
