Welcome to Pelican Media
Based in San Francisco, California, Pelican Media is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose primary aim is the production of films with environmental themes.
Our special focus is on urban habitat: the relationships between people and animals. Recent projects include films about a flock of wild parrots in San Francisco, California brown pelicans along the coast, and double-crested cormorants on a Columbia River island.
Our revenue comes from foundations, individuals, organizations, government grants, broadcast rights, film royalties, stock footage sales, DVD/streaming distribution, and other program-related sources. Executive Director Judy Irving is an Emmy-and-Sundance-award-winning filmmaker.
