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

It Takes a Village

Lots of water is used at the Shelter. It became apparent that a well was needed to avoid the high cost of town water. Turned down for grants, the Shelter was very pleased to have other non profit groups come to the rescue. The Wounded Warriors dug the well last month and The Cape Fear Audubon Society donated money for the electrical and pump connections.
Sandra Palmer of Lowes Home Improvements raised money for the fittings and fixtures.
David Schade of Delta Properties and Joe Dorner spent hours doing the wiring for the well and for much needed electrical fixtures.
A donated pump was reconditioned by Steve Edwards and installed by Fred Foster but the water is not usable! Any well experts out there who might want to help us out?
