By adopting a seal you support an individual animal through a one-time donation. This way you contribute significantly to its recovery. It’s a very special way to help a seal. With this adoption you will receive an adoption certificate with a picture of your seal and some background information. When the seal is rehabilitated it will be released again. You will receive pictures of the release by e-mail.

Look below for the seals available for adoption and check out their stories. Use the form to make your choice and to adopt.

Seals for adoption

Nala

NALA

Found on: December 17th on Terschelling
Species: grey seal
Rescued because: Nala lost her mother. She was only a week and a half old when she was found alone. Nala was way too young to take care of herself, so when her mother was not observed she was brought to the sealcentre. She is in the same recovery room as grey seal pups Olaf and Elsa.

Olaf

OLAF

Found on: December 10th on Vlieland
Species: grey seal
Rescued because: Olaf was about 3 days old when he washed up after a storm on the beach of Vlieland. He had lost his mother. The umbilical cord was still on his belly and one of his eyes was inflamed. He is now being taken care of in the Sealcentre where he is being cared for.

Elsa

ELSA

Found on: December 12th, Terschelling
Species: grey seal
Rescued because: Elsa was about a week old when she was found on the Dutch island of Terschelling. She was all alone and even after a period of observation, the mother was obviously not returning. And so Elsa was brought to the Sealcentre where she shares a unit with Olaf

Dobby

DOBBY

Found on: December 26th on Vlieland
Species: harbour seal
Rescued because:Dobby has a lot of wounds around her eyes. It is unknown how he got them, but it could be because he was bitten by a seal or a dog. The skin is starting to heal, so hopefully Dobby will recover completely. Will you support his road to recovery by adopting him?

Rudolf

RUDOLF

Found on: December 25th on Ameland
Species: harbour seal
Rescued because: Rudolf is sick due to a lungworm infection. This results in very heavy breathing and coughing up blood from the lungs. That is why his face was covered in blood as you can see in the picture. Will you adopt Rudolf? With an adoption we can give him medicine for a week!
