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

Chris Atack of Oak Island needed a project to attain Eagle Scout status. The project had to include elements of organization, perseverance, leadership and learning new skills. To his credit, he was not easily discouraged. He created a really useful new habitat for the small birds. They need room for flying and a perch. It also must be open to the elements and light weight for easy moving and cleaning. He organized a working group and spent a lot of hours building these great cedar flight cubes. Every one of them is currently in use!
