Wexford Seal Release

courtown-seal-release.jpg

Join us this Sunday at 2pm on the Main Beach in Courtown, Co. Wexford (the beach with the boardwalk) for the release of some of our rehabilitated seals!!

Be sure to arrive a little early so you don't miss the moment the crates open. We will have a small gift shop, a raffle and buckets for donations towards our work, so please bring some spare change if you have it too!

Our nearby centre (located just behind the Courtown swimming pool) will be open for visitors before and after the release for you to talk to our volunteers, learn more about our work and see the remaining seals in our care,

We expect to be releasing 7 seals on Sunday! The seals returning to the wild include our last two common seals Panoramix and Frodo, as well as grey seals Tikka, Pigwidgeon, Haggis, Eleven and Yvaine.

After the release we will still have 10 grey seals in our care, and we expect to see the first arrivals of this years common seals in the next few weeks, so numbers will start to rise again!
