We had a chance to visit twice while vacationing in Key Largo this past week. I was particularly excited to meet the newest resident, Crandon, the sandhill crane I had read about on the Center’s Facebook page. He was perky and cute! Although I love...More

This place does a great service for the injured birds. And others that just show up! It's nothing fancy. But you will see a lot of great bird close up. So unusual to have a place like this right on the bay..instead of a resort....More

A beautiful natural sanctuary where non-releasable birds have a great home. The staff is knowledgeable and great at educating the public. Be sure to go down the road the the education center and rehabilitation hospital to learn more about the birds.

We really enjoyed seeing all the rescued birds and our walk along the water. Beautiful ocean views at the end. A nice place for an hour or so. It is a donation for an entry fee. Please be generous what a great cause.

This was a wonderful stop with our kids. Our 3 year old loved it and the enclosures were really well done and they are clearly doing good work.

Take a nice short relaxing walk to view the birds. It’s free and probably takes 15-30 min to walk through and see a variety of birds. Great information.

If you need to take a break from water sports, and go to a nice little shelter for injured wild birds, this is for you. Don't plan a day, just a quick visit
