Save our Seabirds is by far one of the most amazing attractions in Longboat Key/Sarasota area. They are a bird rescue and really do a TON for the birds in this area. The volunteers are very helpful and friendly. They answered all of my questions and went above and beyond to give us information about specific birds. They are also... More

We called this organization when we noticed a bird in trouble at our pond and they provided the right advice.

This is a wonderful place to visit with friends or family. It is great to see that so many birds were rescued and are taken care of. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful. On a side note: while walking the beach one morning I noticed a heron had a hook stuck in his throat. We called Save Our Seabirds... More

This is a great place run by great people doing great things, but not so much geared toward the general public. There are a wide variety of local birds to see, most of which are fascinating. The pelican enclosure has a whole population of pelicans with prosthetic legs. It's touching to see. It's hard to rate this highly when there... More

SOS works strictly with sick and/or injured birds and allows them to recover. A non-benifit company it is great to see all the volunteers doing good for the local aviary population!

Nice place to visit. Well laid out and informative. Nice to see people caring about birds. A pleasant way to spend an hour or so. Not too expensive. Keep up the good work.

it is hard to compare an aquarium to a seabird shelter,but I find it more interesting to see birds get the help they need instead of looking at fish,the talking crow they have is hilarious,and the hawks,and owls make it worthwhile,,,,and you don't really have to worry about a bad smell from the cages either..

My whole family loved this exhibit because they were able to get up close to all of the wild life. It was terrific and easy to do because it was right next to the aquarium!

I visited Save Our Seabirds with my step-grandmother and it was incredible! All the money goes to helping the birds. It's truly a great experience.

This is truly a non- profit working to save birds. I imagine many are turned off by the admission after choking up the cash at Mote. Here the admission actually goes towards funding the birds. Inside you get up close and personal with many birds that have been injured and cannot be released. It is really cool. The place is... More
