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

Clydes Rescue Team

Juvenile pelicans often find fishing bait very appealing! This poor youngster was entangled in a mackerel rig with 3 treble hooks, wire leader and heavy weights. It took Jack and Dot Moore about 3 hours to find and capture him. On arrival at the Sea Biscuit, clinic volunteer Michelle Rowan removed the tackle, cleaned and bandaged his wounds. It was Michelles last day in NC and she now resides in Dallas. The next day, Dr. Travis at River Rd. Animal Hospital stitched up the deep lacerations in his neck and provided the antibiotics to insure his recovery. It was a great teamwork effort!
Jim Stoddard has taken it upon himself to print up some super T Shirts and Hoodies with a special Sea Biscuit photo and "GOT FISH?" logo. They can be purchased for $15 and $25 at the Duck, Duck, Goose shop in Southport. Profits are donated to the shelter.
