While the Mission Statement of Sea Biscuit emphasizes rescue, rehabilitation, and release, it is not surprising that another part of our mission is education. To that end, the shelter houses education birds that appear at educational programs.
None of our education birds can be released to the wild due to the nature of their injuries, yet these birds serve a wonderful function within the human community as ambassadors for the bird world. Sea Biscuit has separate permits from the federal government that allow these birds to remain in captivity. To maintain its status as an education bird, each one must participate in at least 12 programs annually.
