First Public Seal Pup Release of the Year


The Cornish Seal Sanctuary would like to invite you to join them for their first public seal pup release of the year.

After another busy rescue season, the Sanctuary are happy to be releasing their rescued casualties of the sea back into the wild.


The pup release will take place at Porthtowan Beach, on Tuesday 19th March 2019 at 3.30pm (we recommend arriving for 3.15pm).
Seal Release

Hope was rescued by Zoe, a member of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary team, back in January after she had become entangled in netting. She had a deep wound around her neck which had become infected and was in need of specialist care.

Hope has really thrived during her rehabilitation and the team are excited to see her take her next step in her journey being released back into the wild.
Hope was named by the team at SEA LIFE Trust, the parent charity of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

Andy Bool, Head of SEA LIFE Trust, will be joining the Sanctuary to wave farewell to Hope and the other seal pups as they are released.
