San Diego, CA- Cabrillo National Monument

By: Alex Warneke (Centennial Volunteer Ambassador)

Cabrillo National Monument is excited to announce a new collaboration for the 2016 National Park Service Centennial with the conservation-based podcast, Pelecanus.

Pelecanus is a radio show/podcast about the current happenings within the science conservation community. As a documentary style show, Pelecanus highlights the people and organizations that are making it their purpose to push the conservation community forward.

For the Centennial Celebration, Cabrillo National Monument will join forces with Pelecanus to highlight the people and parks that comprise America’s Best Idea. Each month an episode will be released focusing on a select science unit within the National Parks. From biological technicians to research managers, we are excited to celebrate the amazing people and stories of the conservation field.

Within the Centennial goals of the National Park Service, this collaboration seeks to shed light on the unique scientific endeavors and conservation conversations of the National Parks and their affiliates. We hope that this partnership serves as an example of how we, as a society, can have a positive impact on the world around us and that we can find optimism and inspiration through science.
