Mary Keller Seabird Rehabilitation Sanctuary

Since its grand opening in June 2004, the Mary Keller Seabird Rehabilitation Sanctuary has treated more than 13,000 birds from more than 190 different species. This bird rehabilitation facility is fully equipped to care and treat injured and sick birds. Upon full recovery, a healthy bird will be released into its natural habitat. Some birds become ambassadors for their species and are a part of education programs and the guest viewing area of the Marine Science Center. The rehabilitation center was named for Mary Keller, a longtime local bird rehabber who has dedicated more than 30 years to the care of sick and injured birds in Volusia County.
