|Jana Sirova, the General Manager for the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, said "Due to the government announcement made on Saturday, we are sad to announce that we will be closing as of Thursday 5th of November 2020 for the duration of the latest national lockdown.
With the Sanctuary having to close for the second time this year, the loss of essential income to help us continue our vital work is proving detrimental, we need your support more than ever.
It costs our charity £23,000 a month for our dedicated animal care team to feed, provide daily care, vital medicines and equipment to the Sanctuary´s residents. We are now also in the midst of the seal pup rescue season with poorly seal pups here recovering on site, with each pup costing over £2000 to put through rehabilitation.
We know it is a tough time for everyone right now, but if there is any way you can support us we will be eternally grateful for your help.
You can donate via our Just Giving page -
To help support our pup rehabilitation work, or support us by purchasing a gift from our Sanctuary shop -
We are sending all of our love to you during this time, we promise to keep you updated on all of the Sanctuary animal antics to keep you entertained throughout the month and we hope we can see you all again very soon."
