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

SCARLET HAS A NEW HOME...Her new enclosure allows her room to fly, a view of the woods behind her and privacy from roads and people. Brook Russell did it all. He measured, shopped, created and stapled the entire structure all on his own in less time than it would take a whole work crew. Funds were generously donated By Janet Kurz sister Lorraine Maciag and the Hope From Helen Foundation.
