Environmental Education Programs

We understand that every class/group is at a different stage on their quest to gain environmental knowledge! We also know that knowledge is more easily retained when your having fun!  We have educational programmes to suit the needs of any class/age group. Whether you’d like to visit our rescue centre for our immersive, Marine Conservation Discovery Tour; or host our engaging education team who will visit your school or organisation with our highly-acclaimed, Marine Conservation Roadshow, we have something for everyone!

During our educational sessions, students engage in a 30-minute talk exploring the significance of seals in the Irish marine ecosystem, including the threats they face and ways to protect them.

Following this, they embark on a interactive tour of our rescue facility, meeting our seals and participating in games and activities to reinforce their knowledge. As part of the experience, students have the opportunity to adopt a seal, receiving its rescue story, a certificate of adoption, and regular updates on its rehabilitation journey.
