It is always a good day when the Animal Care Team return the rescued seal pups back into the wild where they belong, but at the same time it is a bit emotional saying goodbye after being with them for the past 2-3 months.

Chilli, Peri Peri, Sabine, Splodge, Star Anise, Wedgie and Zimt were loaded in the Sanctuary´s trailer and drove them to Carbis Bay beach for the release on 30th November 2022.


The Cornish Seal Sanctuary rehabilitates between 50-70 seals pups in need every winter and each pup costs, on average, £2000 to rehabilitate, not including special cases.

A donation of any size would go such a long way, and help to protect the animals at the Sanctuary that has been a huge part of Cornwall´s heritage and an important animal rescue facility for over 60 years.
