Do you want to know who is currently staying at the Sealcentre? Twice a year we are extra busy with taking care of the pups. In the summer there are pups of the common seal and in the winter pups of the grey seal. Seals are brought in all year round who have been sick or injured. They are treated in the Sealcentre, they can recover, grow strong and healthy and are finally released in their own natural environment. No animal stays permanently at the Sealcentre and therefore no day is the same in Pieterburen! Meet a few of the seals that are now being cared at Sealcentre Pieterburen. Of course there are more and you can visit them, the centre is open daily!

Eva

Eva

Species: common seal
Age upon arrival: ca. 10 days
Date found: June 17th 2022
Location: Schiermonnikoog
Rescued because: Eva was found on Schiermonnikoog. Her health was worsening, so we brought her to the centre. There we discovered that Eva's jaw was broken. Fortunately, our vets were able to help her by fixing the fracture with an iron wire.

Lytse Pier

Lytse Pier

Species: common seal
Age upon arrival: ca. 2 months
Date found: August 11th 2022
Location: Ameland
Rescued because: Lytse Pier suffers from lung worms. This is a kind of childhood disease that seals get in their first year of life. Seals often recover from this themselves. Lytse Pier was very weak and therefore came to us. Will you help with his recovery?
