The Marco Island Nature Preserve and Bird Sanctuary is a project the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation started in 2010, and the land was purchased by the foundation in 2021 to preserve this green space for generations to come. Our efforts have provided the community with a place to walk our nature trail, and soon to come, our open-air pavilion. Visitors can now enjoy nature and our wildlife up close. The preserve site is located at 665 Tigertail Court, Marco Island, Florida. The project includes the replenishment of plants and trees native to the region so the public can experience the natural habitat of pre-development Marco Island which will preserve the home of our bird and wildlife population including a nesting pair of American Bald Eagles.
The Preserve is creating a high-profile destination for the island’s numerous visitors and demonstrate the level of concern the citizens of the area have in maintaining and preserving the wildlife and plants that are native to the area while also enriching the world class vacation destination that Southwest Florida provides.
Our web site will provide online access for the public to view educational videos in the future. We currently provide access to our nest cam for the world to view our American Eagle Nest during nesting season from October to May.
