Sweets helps injured pelican

Key West Wildlife Executive Director Tom Sweets removes monofilament line from an injured pelican Wednesday at the Reach Resort on Simonton Street. Sandra Duffy, of Four Marlins Restaurant at the resort, noticed the bird in distress and immediately called the center, which is located at White Street and Atlantic Boulevard. A nearby family at the restaurant witnessed the rescue and was inspired to make a donation to the non-profit organization. Residents and visitors are reminded to avoid allowing unused fishing line to go into the ocean, as fish and turtles can also be adversely affected.
