Gulf Coast Bird Rescue, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is in search of land in Pinellas County to develop into a permanent rehabilitation facility for injured native wild birds.

An initial agreement with George C. McGough Nature Park in Largo to dedicate space at the park to build the GCBR hospital and rehabilitation flight pens was recently terminated on amicable terms. Upon further review the space available will not meet the long-term needs of the new facility. The two organizations will continue to partner together as ambassadors for native wildlife.

Gulf Coast Bird Rescue was founded in February 2013 and has been providing volunteer rescue and transport of injured native wild birds in Pinellas County. In addition to rescue and rehabilitation services, GCBR will provide public education of proper interaction with native wildlife and basic rescue procedures. The need for a rehabilitation facility, however, remains until space is dedicated to building a permanent facility.

“In an area where native wild birds are such a prevalent presence in everyday life, Gulf Coast Bird Rescue provides a critical service that affects every resident in Pinellas County. We stepped in to fill a void that was not being met and we look forward to imbedding ourselves in the community and becoming a non-profit organization that our neighbors can be proud of,” said Executive Director & Co-Founder, Robin Vergara.

Hospital Director, Barbara Suto, has been an integral contributor to the avian community for more than 30 years and is Co-Founder of Gulf Coast Bird Rescue.
