To provide a safe and compassionate emergency first response service for wildlife in need of urgent medical attention.

Due to the ever-increasing population and urbanization in the state of Florida, conflicts between people and wildlife are both inevitable and commonplace.

This gorgeous Northern Gannet was found weak and unable to fly by a beach ranger so he called us for help.
Gannets migrate after the end of breeding season. Usually traveling 500-1000 miles from the location of their breeding colony.
They sometimes tire out and end up beached after their long journey.
Gannets also need to warm up before they can fly. Being seabirds, they have a bit of difficulty walking which leads to problems getting airborne from flat areas. Gannets take flight from the water by facing the wind and strongly beating their wings. In light winds or high waves it's harder for them to take off and sometimes not possible.
Hoping this guy gets rested up and will be released to continue his journey đź’™

This juvenile brown pelican was hanging out on the bank of the lagoon begging for food. Upon further inspection the caller noticed he had a badly broken wing. However, before we arrived he had taken off swimming into the lagoon and ended up resting at the bottom of a nearby dock.
We quickly ran back to the ambulance, drove down to the dock and luckily were able to scoop him up!
The brown pelican catches its food by diving on fish from above and catching them in its bill. So, this poor guy was probably unable to eat for awhile due to his broken wing which kept him from flying.
He was taken in to the hospital.

Together, we can can protect the incredibly diverse wildlife that calls Florida home.
