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

Rehabbers try to find homes for animals that can't be released. Bob the kestral is one of the lucky ones. He has a new home in Littleton, Mass. at a facility called Windows on Wildlife where he teaches youngsters about raptors. Dawn Olmstead is a talented and big hearted local artist who created this stunning portrait of Bob, now called Ranger. It can be seen at the Oak Island Recreation Center and is being raffled off on Jan 31,2012. $1 per chance or 6 for $5 at the Rec Center or send a check to SBWS at 1638 E. Beach Dr., Oak Island, NC 28465
