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

Federal Paperwork

Every year, migratory bird permit holders are required to report to the USFWS on their activity. With just a few days to go, we have had over 315 incoming large wild birds. It is time to file our annual report. There are more than 9 pelicans, 3 owls, a loon, a hawk, an eagle and 3 shorebirds as well as a cattle egret, 2 ring billed gulls and a laughing gull in residence today. All are beautiful and charismatic birds in various stages of recovery. There is still time to use the Paypal button to donate to the cause. There is NO paid staff at the Sea Biscuit Shelter and any donation made is tax deductible.We're very grateful to the donors who have helped provided food and utilities to the shelter.
