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

Coastal Plain Conservation Group Tri-County Bird Count
Pender, New Hanover, Brunswick County, NC April 12
th 2014
Coastal Plain Conservation Group is organizing an exciting new community science project to study the habitats that migrating birds are using in the Tri-County area of Pender, New Hanover, and Brunswick County. This community science project is designed to engage local bird enthusiasts to provide valuable information about migratory bird use of rural and urban conservation areas. On April 12, 2014 community scientists will survey for birds at sites in Pender, New Hanover, and Brunswick County, recording bird species at each site. Participants will collect a list of species for each site visited, recording the greatest number of individuals for each species seen at each site. Greatest number is the most individuals of a species seen or heard at one time. The community scientist/team will then submit their data to CPCG or authorized recipient. Data sheets can be submitted electronically with our online submission form, emailed to a CPCG biologist, mailed to Coastal Plain Conservation Group, or dropped off at Wild Bird and Garden.
