Environment

One of our critical functions is environmental monitoring and protection.  The Sebastian Inlet District routinely works with marine scientists to conduct biological monitoring of the critically important habitats surrounding the inlet that support a broad range of different species. This page is dedicated to the marine life and wildlife that inlet supports.

Birds of Sebastian Inlet

Sebastian Inlet is a Great Florida Birding Trail site, so keep a camera or a pair of binoculars handy. Birders have listed more than 190 bird species, according to our partners at Sebastian Inlet State Park. A bird list and map is available at the ranger station. All photos taken at Sebastian Inlet by District staff.
