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!
