Abstract: This study was conducted to identify aspects of the breeding ecology of white pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhychos) in British Columbia and to develop a management plan to preserve and enhance white pelicans and their habitat in British Columbia. Field studies were conducted during the breeding seasons from 1977 to 1980. The major migratory route of white pelicans in British Columbia occurred in the Okanagan Valley. Pelicans arrived at Stum Lake, the only known breeding location in BC, in mid-April and remained on the Fraser Plateau until late September. Eighty-three percent of all pelicans observed in BC during the summer were located within 80 km of the breeding lake. Chilcotin Lake, approxiamtely 70 km west of Stum Lake, was the primary foraging site during the study. Identification of bone samples collected on the breeding island indicated that pelicans in BC prey chiefly on non-game fish species, such as sucker (Catostomus spp.). Pelicans at Stum Lake selected flat unvegetated areas to nest. The presence o
