Due to severe flooding on 5th December 2013 the Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary is temporarily closed at the moment. Since then the Sanctuary´s team and the contractors have been working very long hours to get the Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary rebuilt, by the time it is finished, later in the year, they hope to have made it even better than it was before!

Update - 10th August 2014 - We need your Help!
Earlier this year in June members of staff from UK SEA LIFE Centres took part in a 20 mile sponsored walk of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, raising money for a brand new charity the "Sea Life Marine Conservation Trust", which is fundraising to kick start campaigns and other global actions on plastic pollution, whaling, MCZs, seahorses, turtles and sharks!

They are now asking for your assistance and to Help in this great cause by clicking here and signing the SEA LIFE Centres petition. Let´s wipe out whaling together!!!

As the Sanctuary will be re-opening in October, we decided it was time to go back to Scarborough to check on the Otters and Seals from Hunstanton. We visited during the August bank holiday weekend and were pleased to see that the Otters and Seals on vacation at the Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary were looking very well Smiley Face
