REPORT A SEAL ADOPT SIGN IN OPPORTUNITIES

From Inspiration to Impact

Seals are ambassadors for healthy oceans.

Our passionate team love to share their knowledge of seal ecology, behaviour, and what threats face seals and other marine life, promoting a healthy marine environment!

Seal Rescue Ireland shares the lessons we’ve learned in a fun, interactive environment. We offer an array of engaging local and online programmes, tailored to suit all ages and learning abilities.

“I booked the seal rescue experience for my kids and their friends (ages 5-7). Everyone had a wonderful time learning about seals and the importance of conservation. Krysten started with an educational lesson about different seals then continued to a tour of the seal sanctuary. She showed the different stages of the seals’ rehabilitation; how the seals go from the ICU to kennels to large pools. The experience ended with Q and A where all the kids were very engaged asking questions. I highly recommend this experience.”
