Mission Statement

The Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter cares for injured or orphaned birds. We provide minimum medical care, safety from predators, food and shelter from the elements. When an animal is able to care for itself, it is released to the wild. We do not keep nonreleasable animals nor use heroic methods to sustain the quality of their life. However, the Shelter does make every effort to rehabilitate an endangered species and every animal brought here is treated with respect and caring.

Support our Shelter

We receive no federal or state funding.
The Sea Biscuit relies on donations from the Town of Oak Island, individuals and private businesses. To support the rehabilitation of wild birds, field studies and educational programs, reach us by phone 910-278-7871 or email: seabiscuitshelter@yahoo.com

Build it and they will come

This injured falcon is a recent arrival.

The young female American Kestrel is the first bird to use the new small bird flight enclosure. Made possible by a grant from the Brunswick County Unrestricted Endowment, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation, this pen is designed for the little guys who need to spread their wings prior to release. Brook Russell spent many hours on the framing and we are very grateful for his time and expertise. Perry and Gus Grosch stapled on the screening so it could be in use today! A few finishing touches, some gravel flooring and exterior plantings will complete the structure.
