The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary

It’s located in Indian Shores, Florida. I cannot describe here the dedication that presently exists among all of the caregivers that look after these injured birds. What joy it is to watch these pelicans be fed everyday by the relentless workers at the Sanctuary.

These pelicans are already in the wild, but have recently been released. The Sanctuary helps these recently released pelicans with some food to equip them with a more successful transition to the wild. “The sanctuary is the largest wild bird hospital in the U.S. based on the admission of over 8,000 injured birds each year.

It is set up to immediately triage, stabilize, and administer fluids to malnourished or injured birds. The Sanctuary’s mission is dedicated to the rescue, repair & rehabilitation of injured birds and then their release back into nature”. http://www.seabirdsanctuary.com/Home_Page.html

First Spring Pelican

Thousands of pelicans are found injured each year by fishing hooks and nets. I believe we should all become skilled at how to proceed if this situation were to happen to any of us out in the wild. The Sanctuary provides excellent material on how to proceed with such unfortunate incident. Here’s a link on how this situation can be handled in a skillful manner: http://www.seabirdsanctuary.com/Unhook_A_Bird.html
