The pelican represents teamwork, group dynamics, regeneration, and resourcefulness. Pelicans have been driven to near extinction in many areas due to the pollution of mankind, but have managed to bounce back. They speak of resilience and determination.
Pelicans are very social creatures who will hunt in groups in the spirit of cooperation, banding together to push schools of fish towards the shallows where they can then scoop them up. They nest communally and both males and females take turns sitting on the eggs. Pelican speaks of the group dynamic, shared responsibilities, and making the most of what we have been given.
Pelicans remind us to view ourselves as part of the whole. We all grow more when we work together in the spirit of cooperation. Pelican arrives to remind us that there is plenty for everyone. They also speak of the determination to not only survive, but thrive even when odds are stacked against them. If pelican appears to you it may be time to surround yourself with supportive people who encourage you. They also remind you of the importance to want what you have - to make the most of what you have been given.
Pelicans in dreams speak of growth through the conservation of resources and making the most of what you have.
