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 puppies of the harbour seal and in the winter puppies 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 center is open daily!

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT FOR MOTHER'S DAY...

...is of course a seal adoption from Pieterburen! Surprise your lovely mother with this adoption bundle, including a limited edition Sealcentre card designed especially for Mother’s Day! You can personalize the bundle by adding a message to the adoption certificate, or by writing something on the card! A one-time Mother’s Day adoption bundle includes

Deloris

Deloris

Species: harbour seal
Age upon arrival: ca. 9 months
Date found: March 21th 2020
Loction: Ameland
Rescued because: Deloris was found on the beach of Ameland. She was very sick because of a lungworm infection. These parasites damage her lungs and then seals can cough up blood. This is very painful for seals. You can see the blood around her face in the picture. Will you help Deloris recover?
