Since mid-July 2021, a special guest can be observed in Park Meerland: a red-backed pelican, also known as a small pelican. The pelican comes from Veldhoven Zoo.
Six years ago, the pelican cage in Veldhoven Zoo broke down. Since then, the group of pelicans moves freely through the ponds of Veldhoven Zoo. Since mid-July 2021, one of these pelicans has spread its wings to Park Meerland. The pelican regularly flies back to the other pelicans in Veldhoven Zoo. Visitors of Park Meerland do not have to worry or call Zoo Veldhoven.
