Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary

Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary Review

When pelicans and other birds become entangled in fishing lines, locals sometimes carry them to this nonprofit sanctuary, founded by Ralph Heath and dedicated to the rescue, repair, recuperation, and release of sick and injured birds. The sanctuary played a big role after the gulf oil disaster in 2010. At times there are hundreds of land and sea birds in residence, including egrets, herons, gulls, terns, sandhill cranes, hawks, owls, and cormorants.
