Guests can enjoy walking along the boardwalk enjoying these shade and the many manicured enclosures. Special tours for schools, families and groups.

Educational Programs

Programs geared towards specific age groups are available ranging from K-2 grade up to 9-12 grades. These programs are fully accredited and provide excellent field trips for schools. Along with the educational programs, Save Our Seabirds offers a rigorous college internship program.

What if you Find an Injured Bird?

Injured seabirds are often found by beachgoers, families and individuals. If you find a bird and it's hurt, you may need to provide temporary care. Use a large box and fold a towel to line the bottom. Make sure the box has holes for airflow and put the bird in the box. Keep the box in a quiet and dark place and don't feed the bird. It's also si-highlight--primary not to handle the bird. After providing temporary care for the bird contact the sanctuary.
