Wild Bird Rehab Sign


While visiting Key Largo for a weekend getaway, we took a short side trip down to Tavernier to visit the Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center.

This not for profit sanctuary is run by dedicated volunteers who depend on visitor donations to continue rehabilitating a variety of sick or injured birds.

A small sign asking for donations with a drop box sits at the entrance to the elevated boardwalk which leads to the various bird enclosures.

The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center is located at 93600 Overseas Highway, Tavernier, FL 33070 at MM (mile marker) 93.6 on the Bayside. It is about 7 miles south of Key Largo, and about 75 miles south of Miami.

Visitors are welcome all year long during daylight hours. The staff can be reached by phone at (305) 852-4486. To see the birds being fed, visit in the afternoon around 3 PM.
