On 1st September 2021 the Cornish Seal Sanctuary celebrated the amazing marine animals that are seals #NationalSealDay! At the Sanctuary, they are dedicated to protecting seal pups and raising awareness about how we can all do our bit to help support them. They rehabilitate between 50-70 seal pups every season, and they couldn´t do it without your help.
The #National Seal Day marks the launch of the Sanctuary´s #PutPupsFirst campaign which is all about supporting seal pups, providing advice and vital information to the public and helping their Sanctuary to continue their work, however after a very difficult few years, they need your help so they can help them.
As well as their work rescuing vulnerable seal pups, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary provides a permanent home to those who cannot be released back to the wild due to medical issues.
Most pups are successfully released, but on occasions, a few require ongoing care and medication for the rest of their lives and their site in Gweek is specially designed to ensure those animals can live a happy, comfortable life with them.
