It is not integrated into the aquarium and you have to pay an extra entrance fee(10$adults,6$children), but this is used for feeding the birds. The collection of birds is wide and each one of them is or was injured. Some can' see properly any more, some have... More

This is a small exhibit dedicated to rescuing injured birds. It is mostly a self guided. If you like birds this is a good stop.

We stopped by SOS after visiting the Mote and we're so glad we did! We're big into animals and animal rescue and this was such a wonderful place. Those working with the birds truly enjoy what they do.

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

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.
