Although Mary Ellen is not technically on staff, she IS one of the family. Mary Ellen has been operating Sea Biscuit Wildlife Shelter on Oak Island, NC since 2007. After moving to North Carolina in 2003 she realized that there was no rehabilitation center for local shorebirds that swallow fish hooks, get tangled in nets, or are otherwise injured or orphaned.

We are proud to be associated with Sea Biscuit and Dr. Travis is glad to donate as much of her supplies, services, and expertise as she can to support this extremely worthwhile local non-profit organization.
