These guys do an awesome job rescuing injured and abandoned seabirds and getting them back to a healthy state before releasing these beautiful creatures back to their natural habitat!
Wonderful organization! Very dedicated to rehabilitating injured Pelicans and other birds.
PHSS does amazing work with limited resources. It's a wonderful place full of good people and great animals.
I had no idea the volume and diversity of wildlife the Seabird Station was treating. I thought they mostly just took in pelicans, but they treat over 2000 patients of 150+ species each year.
The staff and volunteers seem very dedicated. I'd highly recommend supporting their important work and going on one of the monthly Behind the Scenes Tours. They give you an indepth perspective of the work they do and even released a pelican at the end of the tour. My son really enjoyed the tour and we're going to come back next month with some of his cousins.
The tours are free, but definitely consider making a donation to support their work.
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!
