Save Our Seabirds is a fantastic organization dedicated to rescuing birds of all types that are injured, sick, or need care in the surrounding community. They have two sites that care for the birds; one in Wimauma Florida and one in Sarasota Florida. The Sarasota site is a beautiful sanctuary open to the public to view the resident education birds. My time with them has been a wonderful learning experience that has taught me to appreciate the feathered friends we have and how best to avoid contact and causing them injury. I have been part of educational visits for school, church and other community groups. I have also done off site outreach programs to spread the word of the SOS mission. The most fulfilling aspect has been the rescue and release of injured birds. I have personally rescued osprey, cormorants, egrets, ducks, and baby birds of many types. I have also been involved in releasing rehabilitated birds back into their habitats. This was an amazing experience as you see the bird emerge from its transport, stretch its wings and take off. I will remember my time here and the people with very fond memories.
