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

The New Peli Pond

Jane Kulesza prepared an application for a Brunswick Electric Grant. It was speedily approved and construction began as soon as their check went into the bank. Gus Grosch was the first volunteer on the scene and stayed right through to the finish. Lisa Stites, the State Port Pilot reporter brought along her husband and son. Little did they know that they were volunteers too. Jack Nelson and the McDade family all shoveled sand, pushed, pulled, stapled, rolled and unrolled and it was basically finished the next day at noon. Trevor Holmes owns The Natural State Landscapers. He designed the pond so the pelicans can walk into the water. As many as six can share the space to float around. It's easy to clean and the new sand substrate is much better for the birds than the grass they had before.
