Pink-backed Pelican Mdomo

His story

Together with the rest of his flock, little Mdomo was resting on a tree when a fisherman set upon cutting down that same tree, killing most of the birds. Mdomo was the only survivor and came away with only a badly broken wing. By the time he arrived at the KiliCREW, the bones in his wing had fused again, but incorrectly. Due to this, he will never fly again and depends on food and care forever.
