Mission Statement

The Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter at Oak Island, North Carolina cares for injured or orphaned wild 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 non-releasable 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. We educate the public and participate in research projects to further ongoing efforts to protect and preserve wild birds.
