Saying Farewell to Staff
After five years Lauren, the Entertainments Team Leader, left the Cornish Seal Sanctuary this month. She will be missed very much by both the staff and the visitors!

Here is a message from Lauren to all the wonderful visitors she has met over the years.

"Sadly after five years, to spend more time with family, I´ve torn myself away. Wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thanks to all our visitors in that time especially those who visit frequently. Thank you for all your support of myself and the sanctuary, will miss you all."
Lauren, the Entertainments Team Leader
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is committed to wildlife conservation and regularly holds awareness events and fundraising activities for a variety of charities and organisations.
