Clean Water Virtual Scavenger Hunt: Question 1


It’s time to get to know LA Stormwater’s new website with our Clean Water Virtual Scavenger Hunt. For our first question, can you solve our clue by telling us who’s talking and where you found him? Good luck!

From a hundred feet high
It is my wish,
To plunge in the water
And scoop up a fish.

But these scaly treats
Aren’t good for me
When their swimming in sludge
That flows to the sea.

If I eat bad fish,
It makes my eggs weak.
So my population
is not at its peak.

But you can still help
By stopping each day
And doing good deeds
To help Green LA

Call out my name
And help me survive!
But look out below
because I like to dive!

Hint: Explore the Navigation Bar and check our Facebook page for an additional hint.

    The answer is Perican.

  51. Erika Hiebert

    The answer is, my favorite animal, the Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis).

    The Brown pelican mistakes bottle caps and plastic wrappers for fish and end up swallowing the trash. This causes harmful ingury and even death.

    Pesticides like DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane)bioaccumulated within the Brown Pelican because they ate contaminated fish. This caused the eggshell to thin and the embryo to die.

    Thank goodness DDT was banned from use in the U.S.A. in 1972! The population has rebounded since then.
