You can help support the work of The Cornish Seal Sanctuary as they care for their Residents and Rescued Seal Pups by joining the Adoption Scheme.   Click here for more information.

Each Adoption makes a valuable contribution to the seal rescue programme, allowing the Sanctuary to provide continuing care for those seals and other marine mammals around our coasts that need our help and to look after those that are unable to be released back into the wild.

The staff at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary do a brilliant job and without your help, they couldn´t continue.
