This iconic sculpture of one of North Narrabeen’s most recognisable birds is installed near the Coastal Environment Centre.  The sandstone sculpture, measuring 1.6 metres in height and approximately 1.2 tonnes in weight, was hoisted into place by crane.  It replaces the previous pelican sculpture which stood in the same location for 15 years before it was damaged beyond repair.  Local sculptor Chris Bennetts from Ishi Buki worked on the pelican sculpture for three months.
