We visited the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary several times while in the area. It is one of the largest wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. For 30+ years, the Sanctuary has been a hospital for birds of all kinds. The Sanctuary's Mission as always been dedicated to Rescue, Repair & Rehabilitation and release of healthy wild birds.
It’s a working bird hospital, but doubles as a bird zoo. They had more birds there than most of the zoos we have been to.
One of the volunteers let our boys pet a Brown Pelican that was a patient there.
They had a gift shop, and observation deck.
If you like birds, or have kids, this is a must see when in the area.
It’s free, but try to drop some spare change in the donation box; birds don’t have health plans we have to help them out.
