Great Blue Heron Rescue & Release (VIDEO)



July 27, 2022 - Check out this heartwarming video of the release of "Floyd" - a Great Blue Heron that was rescued by the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge team. Floyd was discovered at the Okaloosa Island Pier with lacerations from fishing lines & hooks wrapped around his leg. After a few weeks of treatment in their Shorebird Rehabilitation Habitat, Floyd was back on his feet and ready to take flight!


Saltwater Restaurants is thrilled to be a part of sponsoring the new Shorebird Habitat for local sea birds like the Great Blue Heron. Funding for this project is a part of our ongoing commitment to give back to our beaches & wildlife through our S.E.A. initiative. 🌊
