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

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
