The Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter

Hey BHIC fans!
Kendyll here with a loon update. The juvenile Common Loon, found on East Beach, is fattening up at The Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter. Mary Ellen Rogers runs a bird rehabilitation center out of her home- literally the downstairs was converted into a wildlife refuge, while the upstairs remains her home. The goal of treatment is eventual release into the wild. A non-profit organization like the Bald Head Island Conservancy, The Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter relies on donations from the public. The cost of taking care of each individual bird is exponentially high. Since I started working for the Conservancy in May, Mary Ellen Rogers has taken care of a Mourning Dove, Black-billed Cuckoo, Brown Pelican, and a Blackpoll Warbler from Bald Head Island. If you would like to make a donation to this spectacular rehabilitation center, you can make checks payable to the Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter and send them to 1638 East Beach Drive, Oak Island, NC 28465. You can reach Mary Ellen Rogers at (910) 278-7871. Cash donations will be used for food and veterinary supplies. If you would like to make a supplies donation, Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter can always use copy paper, detergent, mops, brooms, heat lamps, sand filter for an above ground pool, all sizes of fish (alive or frozen), bird seed, cracked corn, organic dry cat food, unflavored pedialyte, meal worms, crickets (live or freeze dried), scalpels, black light flashlight, friendly plastic (craft molding) for casts, autoclave, syringe needles, gavage tubes, vinyl gloves, storage shelving, base cabinets, tarps for wind protection, non- slip doormats for lining kennels, and a 10 ft. pool with filtration for pelicans. Help out our fellow Bald Head Island wildlife guardian!
