Pelican Harbor Seabird Station, Inc.
Rating: 5 stars 1 reviews
Location: 1275 Ne 79th St Causeway Miami FL 33138 USA
Mission: 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.

The staff at Pelican Harbor are more than welcoming when you step foot onto the property. They are very engaging and are able to tell you even the most minute details of each type of bird they save (both native and non-native to FL). We even got to meet some permanent residents (those birds who due to injuries are unable to be released back into the wild) - each of course with their own personality! It is amazing the work this dedicated bunch of people do for our wildlife in Florida. They do take visitors on tours, and many of the permanent residents are available for adoption/sponsorship (a great idea for children, organizations or schools). We are so grateful for their work, and generally awed at this amazing nonprofit organization!

I would love to see Pelican Harbor expand so they can help out more of our native (and non-native) birds of Florida!
