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

Groundskeepers Save Hawk

When the guys who keep up the Pearl Golf Course in Calabash saw this hawk, they didn't quit making phone calls until they had her in good hands. Noelle Khatib is shown bringing this young female Red-tailed Hawk to her kennel cab. Extremely underweight and in shock on arrival, she's made remarkable progress in just 4 days.She had Xrays at River Rd Animal Hospital - a nasty infection but no broken bones on the wing. Next she'll see an eye doctor because her left eye is also infected. No telling what got her but she would not have lived another 24 hours without Brian, Jeremy and John.
