In case you have not heard, Seaside Seabird Sanctuary received our 501 (c) (3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service. The status designates us as a public charity and allows donors to deduct contributions from their taxes. It also solidifies our status as a successor organization to the previous entity and we hope it instills confidence in us as we continue our mission; to rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured or orphaned birds.

The 501 (c) (3) status allows us to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts. It also allows us to receive donations through trusts and estates. We rely 100 percent on private donations to maintain operations. We hope you will consider donating to us this holiday season either online, by mail or in person at the sanctuary located at 18328 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores, FL 33785.

Seaside Seabird Sanctuary has made changes including a new logo, website and new signs throughout the facility. We are also making improvements like new outdoor enclosure netting, repairs to our fence and general clean-up. We welcome you to come visit us to see for yourself! 

We are currently working on plans for a grand opening of the new and improved facility. We will let you know as soon as the date is set and we hope you will be able to join us to celebrate our new organization.
