Stopped here between trips at Mote aquarium. Lots of birds here. They ask for a donation on the honor system. Sadly, nobody was on hand to answer questions. But it was a self-guided tour, and there were many different birds to see. Owls, Hawks, Pelicans,...More

Save Our Seabirds is an important rescue organization with a facility in the parking lot of MOTE marine. SOS is a worthwhile and educational addition to a day at MOTE - perfect for smaller kids too.

Been taking my children and now my grands there, for years! It's right next door to Mote Marine, so you can "kill two birds with one parking space" so to speak.
