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

Year End 2011

378 birds came to the Sea Biscuit last year. Of the birds who were treated, a whopping 45% were released. Many had injuries that made them non releasable and they were transferred to educational facilities. Sadly, many were unable to be helped at all.
Of the total number,115 of them came from Oak Island and another 59 from the Southport area. 50 pelicans, 49 gulls and other beach birds outnumbered the 34 hawks and owls
