The Gulfcoast bird sanctuary is a small wild bird hospital and sanctuary on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Hundreds of birds call the sanctuary home and even though rehabilitation and release is always the goal many of the birds brought in never leave. This project documents many of the sanctuary’s permanent residents while attempting to illustrate the damaging impact of man’s encroachment into native avian habitats.
