Hello! My name is Megan, an 18-year-old ocean activist living in Miami, Florida. Going to a school across the street from an amazing view of the ocean, I have found myself ever-so enthralled in its seemingly infinite beauty. I've also realized the desperate state the ocean is in from society's poor choices--things like over-fishing, illegal whaling, and, you guessed it, pollution.
Most people these days are concerned with "going green" and are determined to make their lives more eco-friendly. What many fail to realize is that while being green is admirable, something far larger is at stake from mankind's poor choices than the soil on which we walk, and that is the ocean. Perhaps we should all change our way of thinking and try on an outfit of a different color--blue.
The wildlife rehabilitation manager wasn’t at Pelican Harbor yesterday so another intern and I were in charge of the animal clinic! This muscovy duck was brought in with a messed up foot so we decided to go ahead and make a boot to correct the issue ourselves. Turns out we did a pretty good job. I’m learning!

Pelican Harbor Seabird Station has been selected as a finalist in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program! Toyota will be giving away 100 vehicles to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days based on votes from the public. The day to vote for us is June 30th and we would really appreciate your vote! We are hoping to win a new Toyota Tundra to help rescue injured, sick and orphaned wildlife in the Miami area. Please help us expand our organization! :)
