[The Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary]

Work will soon be getting underway at Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary to refit the current Seal Hospital and create a new Seal Rescue Centre.

The £50,000 project is designed to create better facilities for rescued seals brought to the Sanctuary, much like Hermione (pictured) who was rescued by Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary after being found abandoned on the Holme beach.

The development will also include the introduction of a Seal Rescue Academy - where visitors will be able to learn all about the 5 ″R´s″ - Rescue, Recovery, Rehabilitation, Release and Retirement.

The Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary actively participates in seal rescue both locally and nationally. Attraction Manager, Nigel Croasdale says, ″The existing Seal Hospital has successfully seen over 100 baby seals through its doors, however, the time has come to upgrade the facilities to ensure we can continue to rescue and care for these amazing animals for years to come″.

The new look Rescue Centre will allow visitors to get closer to the seal pups than ever before and follow their journey from the first days of treatment through to their recovery and final release back to the wild.

Work is due to start at Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary in February and is scheduled to be completed by the Easter holidays. The Sanctuary will continue to be open to visitors throughout the hospital renovations.
