Cornish Seal Sanctuary Cornwall

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary Cornwall

Set in the picturesque Helford Estuary, by the beautiful village of Gweek, in Cornwall.

The Seal Sanctuary has over 55 years experience in Seal Rescue, Rehabilitation and Release. Started in the winter of 1958 when a baby seal, only a few hours old, was washed up on the beach at St Agnes. Ken Jones lived with his wife just one hundred yards from the beach, he picked up the pup and took it back to his small garden.

For many years he ran a rescue centre for seals and oiled birds, with just one pool, at St Agnes. The news of his work with seals spread, and he received more and more calls about injured seals. His demand meant his sanctuary needed to grow and The Cornish Seal Sanctuary began.

Today the Sanctuary has nursery pools, convalescence, and resident pools, and a specially designed hospital. View video of seals being released.

In addition to the Grey and Common Seals, they have Californian and Patagonian Sea Lions. The Sanctuary also provides a much-needed haven for a variety of other animals, such as Otters, Penguins, Sheep, Ponies and Goats.

Open every day of the year apart from Christmas Day. Opening times from 10am. Please check with the centre for spring, summer, autumn and winter closing times, as these may vary.

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is a dog friendly attraction in Cornwall.
