Pelican Harbor Seabird Station was founded in 1980 to help injured pelicans found swimming toward their rookery at sundown. An average of 265 pelicans per year have been treated ever since, with a release rate over 75%. We maintain 40 permanently injured pelicans for on-site educational display and for outreach programs at schools and we are currently planning a formal research project involving release of their progeny to help a local natural pelican rookery.

Reviews for Pelican Harbor Seabird Station, Inc.
Pelicans need our help. We take them for granted because we grew up in FL with them all over the place. The people who work at the Pelican Harbor will help any animal they can. If they don't have means to fix it they find a place that can. The education and experience you receive on their boat tour is extraordinary. We saw a bald eagle on one trip. The baby pelicans are so innocent and need protection. The staff is kind too!
I have watched them grow for the last 18years. They do a wonderful job rehabilitating injured birds.
I have been supporting the Pelican Sea Bird Station for around twenty-five plus years and found them to be the most important organization for the rescue and rehabilitation of our sea birds.
Between 1995 and 2005 I was employed by Miami-Dade County Parks Dept. to oversee the property where the Sea Bird Station is located. The founder and staff were the greatest people to work with.
Even that I moved from Miami I intend to continue to support them through donations.
I have dropped off injured birds found on our property. They have also come to pick up injured birds from our property. Both were wood storks.

This is a wonderful place, not only for helping pelicans but for educating the public. I have taken my students there for years. I have taken wounded birds to them and they have taken care of them and found them new homes.
I have supported this program for several years. They are a caring group of people who go the extra mile for Florida's pelicans & other wildlife. My contributions are wisely used.
It is small but has some neat birds. Staff is knowledgeable and likes to share information and they are happy to take time answering questions. It is a fun stop to learn about rehab of birds and conservation in general.
PHSS welcomed me with open arms when I re-located from the UK and was looking to take up voluntary roles to help animals in need. As a zookeeper I have no doubt that all the staff and volunteers at PHSS do everything in their power to assist injured and orphaned animals and I have seen the wide variety of animals they help, from pelicans to turtles, pigs, doves and everything in between. I love spending time at PHSS and feel that I am appreciated for the help I give them. I now help PHSS receive donations by shopping online through http://smile.amazon.com/ and donating all of my loose change!
Friendly, well-spoken professionals who are passionate about their work. I brought Nugget, a Northern Parula songbird, to them and I'm glad I did. No matter the outcome, I know she's in good hands. Thank you, ladies!
They are the best to treating injured birds by the thousand every year! I seeing all the work they do for those birds because I live close by. Even the cops dropping injured birds here regularly with fishhook or fishing line injuries.
