Shorebird Rescue Signage Installed at Juno Beach Pier

Shorebird Rescue Sign

Shorebird Rescue Sign

Last month, we installed new shorebird rescue signage on the Juno Beach Pier. Now, any angler that accidentally entangles or hooks a bird while fishing will know exactly how to rescue the animal and the proper phone numbers to call for help. If you see a hooked or entangled shorebird, please call FWC at 888-404-3922.

You can help prevent shorebird interactions while fishing by following the tips below:

  • Do not feed birds extra bait or fish carcasses.
  • Properly dispose of excess and unwanted fishing line, as well as other trash.
  • Do not leave poles unattended.
  • Cover bait and don’t dump it on the ground.
  • Cast with care. Do not cast near a bird or near areas where your line may get caught.
