News Update for Autumn 2017

Seal Pups Rescued

Dumbo and Norbert have been successfully released back in to the wild together after being nursed back to health in the seal hospital.

Although it was very sad for the staff to say goodbye, it was lovely to see them go back in to the wild in such a great state of health.

Resident Common Seals

Due to some much needed refurbishment work on the seal pools, the resident seals will not be on display from the 30th of October 2017 for approximately 4 weeks.

Boo is currently on his holidays at Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary. Lora, Pippa and Macey have gone on a girly trip to Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary.
These photos of Lora, Pippa and Macey were taken on 11th November 2017 at Hunstanton SEA LIFE in Norfolk. Macey, Pippa and Lora at Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary
The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary know this will be disappointing for visitors but the staff really want to give the seals the best environment possible so ask for your patience and understanding while SEA LIFE carry out this important work.

If you find a Seal in the Wild
