Roads Accessing the Sanctuary Have Changed
There is no longer a detour to get to World Bird Sanctuary, however, smart phone GPS units have not yet been updated to the new road changes to get to our site from the intersections of 141 and 44. The WAZE app is the only one that we know of that will bring you correctly in through all the new road/exit changes.
World Bird Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides refuge to over 270 residents and rehabilitation and emergency care for up to 400 patients every year. We receive no state, federal or county funding and rely on donations from the public, corporate and foundation supporters to achieve our mission.
