Located at Gweek, near Helston on the Lizard peninsula,
The National Seal Sanctuary Cornwall  is a joy.
Here you can an amazing selection of seals, sea-lions and other species - up close and
personal - and what great characters they are!
The sanctuary is also home to penguins and otters.

Many of the animals here are recovering from injury before being released back into the
wild- the seal sanctuary does excellent work.
It has been rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing seals for 50 years.
And there are several seals that are permanent residents.

Feeding times are fantastic fun, and are accompanied by educational talks from the

The Sanctuary is set in beautiful grounds, with wonderful views - so bring a picnic. A great
day out - and a worthy cause.
