Egmont Key Volunteer Opportunities
Egmont Key is a prime ecosystem that is important to birds and other wildlife. St. Petersburg Audubon encourages you to volunteer with Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges to support this valuable resource. Black Skimmers, Least Terns, American Oystercatchers, White Ibis, Brown Pelicans, Wilson's Plovers, Sandwich Terns, Royal Terns, Pelicans, Laughing Gulls and many more have nested on the Refuge islands and beaches. Beautiful wading birds grace the shoreline including the seldom seen white morph Reddish Egret.
Besides, Egmont Key, being rich with wildlife, it has a fascinating historical significance. Learn about becoming a Bird Steward or Docent. Visit FTBR for more information.
