Our Vanishing Wilderness: Of Broccoli and Pelicans and Celery and Seals

The first program in this environmental series illustrates the tragic effects that can result when pesticides creep into nature’s food chains. It concerns specifically the demise of a major brown pelican flock and the unnatural behavior of seals on islands off the cost of California near Santa Barbara.
