RED DIRT PELICANS


EXPEDITION   |   CURRAWINYA NP. SW QUEENSLAND

a surprise to most, pelicans breed in the desert !

prompted by cyclonic flooding of the Channel Country in 2008 hundreds of thousands of coastal pelicans converged on outback lakes & rivers to breed for only the second time in 25 years  

one of the greatest migrations on the planet spawns one of its greatest mysteries  |   how do they know rains are coming?   |   how do they know when to go?   |   or & where?  |  why the outback, and not the coast?    |   why? 

there was only one way to 'try' and find out

five-thousand kilometre journey,

there were far more visual mementos raised than answers
