We did a quick walk through while visiting Mote Marine. The assortment of birds was very interesting and the cockatoos were engaging. Really brightened our day to see these beautiful birds up close and see the excellent work being done to save and rehabilitate them.

We thought this was part of the aquarium admission, but when we realized it wasn't we decided to go anyway. I'm glad we did. My 2 year old loved the birds and it was nice to know the admission was going toward a good cause....More

We support Save Our Seabirds wholeheartedly because there are so many birds that get killed or injured by people being careless and not considering what harm they can do to wildlife.
