Cornish Seal Sanctuary and school pupils celebrate
the past and look to the future
The National Seal Sanctuary marked its name-change back to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary with a commemorative time capsule

The event was supported with the help of Boskenwyn primary schools students, who helped mark the changeover with their own memories of their previous visits to the Sanctuary, and notes about how they imagined the Sanctuary to look in fifty years time.

Ideas ranging from a facility which looks after dolphins and fish, to conservation concerns were included in the capsule.

Sheba Also included, was a biography of the Sanctuary´s oldest resident,
a 40 year old Grey Seal named Sheba (photo left) who is famed as a world record breaker for being the oldest living Female Grey Seal in captivity.

During the visit, the pupils also paid a visit to the Sanctuary´s remaining
27 seal pups, which are completing their rehabilitation programme in the site´s convalescence pool.
"It was great to have the support of Boskenwyn Primary school as we celebrate the changeover to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary," said Marketing coordinator, Kaylie Finn.

"The children got the chance to create a piece of history which is exactly what we are honouring; the Sanctuary´s dedication to marine rescue which spans over fifty years!"
