Overview

No votes yet

Just south of Sarasota, the three tiny Roberts Bay Islands are an important colony for 800-1000 pairs of Brown Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets. The Roberts Bay Islands are managed by the Sanctuary with permission of the Florida Division of State Lands. Sarasota Audubon Society has "adopted" the Roberts Bay Islands as a Project ColonyWatch site. The chapter activity there has substantially raised recognition of this locally important bird colony. Sarasota High School ecology students participate in nesting surveys and fishing line removal projects.
