The facility offers a hospital and rehabilitation for injured birds and a permenant refuge for those deemed unreleasable. The compound is spacious and it’s great to donate to help their work then take a look around their compound which is right on the mangrove shoreside

This was a nice well kept rehab center. Because I live in Florida and seen many similar places I know that I were visiting for short time and wanted to see birds I would go to other places. There are many exceptional places in Florida.More
