Located in Indian Shores, Florida, The Seaside Seabird Sanctuary is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that was founded in September of 2016. The Sanctuary is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick, injured, and orphaned birds.

The 1.5-acre beach-front sanctuary is staffed by experienced professionals and dedicated volunteers who share the same commitment and passion for rehabilitating wild birds.

The Dr. Marie L. Farr Avian Hospital, located on the Sanctuary’s property, admits approximately 3,000 sick, injured, and orphaned birds each year. Similar to a human hospital, the Sanctuary's Avian Hospital is equipped with emergency facilities, a surgical center, injury recovery areas, and an outdoor wild bird recuperation and rehabilitation area.

In addition to the Sanctuary’s continued dedication to rehabilitating sick, injured, and orphaned birds, The Sanctuary is also dedicated to educating the public on the dangers that wild birds face, and how they can help to limit those dangers.

The Seaside Seabird Sanctuary operates entirely on private donations, and receives no kind of government funding of any kind. The Sanctuary is open to the public, where visitors can view the Sanctuary’s 119 permanently disabled birds which take up residency at the Sanctuary.
