The Seabird Rehabilitation Aviary is designed to house both our sea bird collection and those under care and rehabilitation.

Sea World's resident pelicans have a very successful breeding record; it is unusual to see pelicans breed on the eastern coastline of Australia, as they normally travel to inland lake systems to breed.

Many of the sea birds housed in this area will never return to the wild due to severe disabilities which have been caused mostly by mans’ ignorance and careless ways. For example, we have received pelicans that have had a broken wing from being caught in fishing line. Their wings have since been amputated. Those that recover from their injuries are free to leave at any time.
