Resident Seals
Grey seal Badger has been reunited with Pumpkin, after two weeks away from his best friend after having an operation and recovering in the nursery pools.

Badger had his operation last month and has spent a couple of weeks in the nursery pools to allow his wounds to heal nicely.

Although he had a nice holiday in a new pool, the Animal Care Team were really excited to re-unite Badger and Pumpkin.
As soon as Badger´s transport cage came through the door Pumpkin was straight over to lead the welcoming committee!

Seals in the Wild
We encourage people to tell us about any seals they see while walking around the coastal paths (a photo of the seal is very useful). Jill and her husband Paul were out on their walk on one of the several coastal paths around Cornwall and looked down over the cliff to see a seal in a cove. Click here to read more!
This seal has been seen in the wild 84 times since October 2003, Click here to find out more!

A Frequent Question: I´m on holiday in the area and can´t print my tickets

Answer: Although it is preferable and quicker if the front of house staff have a printed copy of your ticket, you can still book your tickets online in advance and make savings if you bring along the booking reference number (or can show the email confirmation on a mobile device) and some ID that matches the booking name. The Front of House Staff can then check the records and allow entry from there.
