The Wildlife Habitat at Flamingo Las Vegas is now home to two recently rehabilitated brown pelicans rescued by the Pacific Wildlife Project. Flamingo adopted the birds, one male and one female, which were rendered flightless following injuries sustained after being entangled by fishing lines. The pair, “Bugsy” and “Virginia,” was introduced into their new home earlier today.

The Wildlife Habitat has undergone renovations to best accommodate the new inhabitants. The island, which was originally home to a colony of penguins, has been repainted and repaired and a dock structure was installed as a perching area for the pelicans. There are also plans for vegetation on the island to be replanted with lush greenery.

This FREE attraction is open 24 hours a day with two presentations daily at 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Wildlife Habitat has become a popular attraction at the famed Strip resort and is perfect for all ages. Guests will see many types of animals in this 15-acre habitat housing four species of turtles, eight species of ducks, black swans, black neck swans, five pound white sturgeon, several 30-pound koi fish, 40-pound catfish and 50-pound grass-carp, five parrots, ten pink flamingos, two helmet guineafowls, two ibis, and now two brown pelicans.

In total, the habitat is home to about 500 animals and it continues to grow and repopulate as needed.
