This is a must visit attraction. Just across from the Mote Marine Laboratory it houses many seabird who simply would not survive in the wild in their current state. You are given a list of all the birds they have which tells you why they are there. It's a great thing these people are doing for these poor birds.

Save Our Seabirds is a rescue for various birds that are injured. Unfortunately, I think Save Our Seabirds is often overshadowed by its neighbor, Mote Aquarium. While Mote cares for the creatures of the sea, Save Our Seabirds cares for the creatures of the air. It is a great place to go and enjoy a walk to see the owls,... More

Thanks to these people for helping our feathered friends. For a small fee you can walk through the many different birds they are helping back to good health. Sad that some will never leave, so the money will help them live the best life we can give them.

The Save Our Seabirds centre is a welcome addition to a visit to the Mote marine. It has improved immensely since we last visited two years ago. The aviaries are clean, well signed and with good information boards. It is nice and shady and a welcome break from the sun for an hour or so looking nat all of the... More

I wanted to go to Jungle Gardens until I realised it was a zoo. Although this place does not have flamingos, It has a variety of birds. The staff is super friendly and informative. You get a sheet of paper before you visit the birds. It tells you the birds name and how they were injured. On the cages it... More

SAVE OUR SEABIRDS recues, rehabs, and releases birds that are injured, abandoned, or in distress in the Sarasota area. Their mission is to get the birds back in the wild if at all possible. 2/3 of the rescued birds are eventually released. The facility offers an up-close and personal view of birds you could never get close enough to see... More

This center is located next to the parking area for the MOTE Aquarium in Sarasota. Entrance fee was $6.00. It contains all types of birds and not just seabirds. The birds can't be released into the wild for various reasons. They are displayed in simple pens and most have their histories listed on accompanying signs. It is a short walk... More

We were looking for something different on our stay and this was it. They have a large variety of rescued birds and the trip is really an education about the birds, why they're there and how they're taken care of. I can't say enough about it. The staff we encountered were more then happy to explain anything to you and... More

If you go to Mote Marine Lab, be sure to save time to visit Save Our Seabirds, a separate rescue organization right off the sidewalk between Mote's main visitor buildings. It looks small from the outside, but the nice paths meander on for a good ways. Here you'll see not only sea birds, but also owls, hawks, vultures, tropical birds,... More
