“Amazing place.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

This is a must visit attraction. Just across from the Mote Marine Laboratory it houses many seabird who simply would not survive in the wild in their current state. You are given a list of all the birds they have which tells you why they are there. It's a great thing these people are doing for these poor birds.

“Rescue Sanctuary for the Birds”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Save Our Seabirds is a rescue for various birds that are injured. Unfortunately, I think Save Our Seabirds is often overshadowed by its neighbor, Mote Aquarium. While Mote cares for the creatures of the sea, Save Our Seabirds cares for the creatures of the air. It is a great place to go and enjoy a walk to see the owls, pelicans, sandhill cranes, gulls and other birds that are found in the wild just outside of the sanctuary. Some of the birds are permanent residents who can't return to the wild, while others are just there for rehabilitation. If you want to learn more about the birds around the area, Save Our Seabirds is a must to visit.

“They need your help”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Thanks to these people for helping our feathered friends. For a small fee you can walk through the many different birds they are helping back to good health. Sad that some will never leave, so the money will help them live the best life we can give them.

“A must when you go to the Mote Marine”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The Save Our Seabirds centre is a welcome addition to a visit to the Mote marine.
It has improved immensely since we last visited two years ago.

The aviaries are clean, well signed and with good information boards.

It is nice and shady and a welcome break from the sun for an hour or so looking nat all of the birds that have been rescued and are cared for at the center.
