As a part of the FKWBC, the Laura Quinn Wild Bird Sanctuary is home to over one hundred non-releasable, permanent bird residents as well as wild birds including hawks, owls, vultures, pelicans, terns, gulls, herons, spoonbills, and many more. Visitors are invited to learn about our birds and the fragile ecosystems of the Florida Keys. The Sanctuary is open to the public from sun-rise to sun-set. Admission is free, but donations to help the FKWBC to continue to fulfill our mission are gladly accepted.

The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release native and migratory wild birds that have been harmed or displaced, to provide or locate a humane shelter for those birds that cannot be released, and to educate the public toward the importance of coexistence with all wild bird species. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center is a 501(C)(3) Charitable Organization.

We really enjoyed our stop here. We particularly enjoyed watching the intern feed the pelicans. It's a quick stop, and free unless you choose to donate. (Which you should!)

We went to the main office for a preview then to the bird rehab center nearby. It is not real large but well done and very interesting. Great pelican area with multiple birds. All done by donation.

We were staying in key largo and looking for something to do on a rainy and windy day. We decided to add this to our list of stops and were not disappointed. Very well maintained and the injured birds of many varieties looked happy and healthy. We got to watch one of the volunteers feed fish to the pelicans and... More

We enjoyed Pelican Feeding at The Beach. The Birds are all there for various injuries incurred sometime in their life. We saw amazing owls of all kinds. Colorful signs on their enclosures tell their names and stories. My favs were the screech owls and the barn owl. All non profit and free for visitors. Donations appreciated and necessary.

These birds ALL are survivors of serious injuries and unable to survive in the wild. Thanks to the support of some donors and some devoted volunteers it is a healthy environment with cages as welcoming for the birds as is possible. It is a privilege to see these rehabilitated (but can't be released) birds, so many local species, including beautiful... More

How long you spend at the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center depends on your own level of interest. If you're quick, you can make it through in 30 minutes. We spent closer to two hours reading, watching, and sitting by the birds. One of the nice things is that these are birds that are common in the area, but that you... More

We found this place by accident and am glad we visited. This is a wonderful place that cares for birds that cannot survive in the wild because of injury or illness, or whatever reason. There were so many beautiful creatures and the chance to see them up close was amazing. Definitely leave time in your drive to stop and visit... More
