The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Inc. is the largest wild bird hospital and bird sanctuary in the  United States, based on the admission of up to 5,000 birds per year.   For over 40 years, the Sanctuary has helped injured wild birds. The Sanctuary's mission is dedicated to the rescue, repair & rehabilitation of injured birds and then their release back into nature.



Display areas feature permanently injured birds that have been given a home at our bird sanctuary. Any offspring they produce are released into their natural environment. At any given time,  visitors can view in excess of 400 wild birds. So come and visit our wild bird sanctuary and see how we help injured birds.  

The Sanctuary is a 
501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which depends solely on the financial support of caring individuals.  

   

Founded in 1971 by zoologist Ralph T. Heath, the Sanctuary is world renowned for its rehabilitation techniques and was the first facility to breed Eastern Brown Pelicans in captivity. The Sanctuary is staffed by experienced professionals and dedicated volunteers. The Hospital has bird injury recovery areas.  An outdoor wild bird recuperation area is also on the grounds.
