On May 30, 2019, at 5:10 PM, FHP Troopers responded to the call of an injured pelican atop the Sunshine Skyway Bridge along the southbound lanes.  The pelican had injured wings and was walking in the travel lanes.  Troopers and Road Rangers secured the pelican against the outside concrete barrier wall and transported the bird to the South Skyway Fishing Pier where wildlife rescue professionals took custody of the pelican to later transport the animal to Seaside Seabird Sanctuary in Indian Shores, Florida.
