Click here to find out what to do if you find a Seal Pup in the Wild?

If you are able to support the Cornish Seal Sanctuary´s work it would make such a difference. Please click on this link - any amount, even just the price of a cup of coffee, will help to support the work and can rescue pups in need.

You can also help support the work of The Cornish Seal Sanctuary as they care for their Residents and Rescued Seal Pups by joining the Adoption Scheme. For more details, please go to the Sanctuary´s official online website!

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.
