START ADOPTION

1. The symbolic adoption - €50

With a symbolic adoption you make a one-off donation in support of the seal, thus contributing an important part to their recovery. You can choose yourself which seal you would like to support. As an adopter, you will receive an adoption certificate with a photo of your seal and background information within a few days. When the seal has recovered and is released back into the sea, you receive photo’s of their release by email. In addition, you will receive an adoption credit with every symbolic adoption. When you collect 10 credits, you can join a release for free!

A symbolic adoption costs €50,- per seal. You can adopt more than one seal!

2. The exclusive adoption - €500

With an exclusive adoption, you are the only adopter. As an exclusive adopter, you can name the seal yourself. In addition, you are invited to release them at the end of their recovery period! This type of adoption includes 2 boat tickets for the release. Naturally, you are also welcome to visit your seal in rehabilitation, as often as you’d like. Even though exclusive adopters are the only ones to adopt a certain seal, said seal can still be supported by donations through our website. Like with a symbolic adoption, exclusive adopters also receive an adoption certificate with a photo and background information of the adopted seal.

With an exclusive adoption, you support a seal of your choice with €500,-. Would you like to know more? You can find more information on exclusive adoptions and the terms and conditions here.

3. The complete adoption - €3.000

The biggest type of adoption is the complete adoption of one seal by one adopter. The adopter in this type of adoption is closely involved with the recovery process of their seal. This adoption is also available to companies who are looking for a unique activity for their staff, because there is the option to expand the adoption with a private boat tour. During this tour, the adopter and 30 guests will go and release the seal back into the wild. In addition, the company will be mentioned in the Sealcentre’s socials.

A complete adoption costs €3.000,-. Would you like to know more? You can find more information on complete adoptions and the terms and conditions here.

WHY ADOPT A SEAL?

An adoption is a very special way to support a seal in need. The total costs of a complete rehabilitation period are between 2.500 and 3.500 euros. Because of these high costs, each adopter is an incredibly important part of a seal’s recovery. With an adoption, you can choose to contribute to a portion of the seals recovery, or even to support the seal’s recovery in its entirety. The Sealcentre does not receive subsidies and is therefore completely dependent on donations, adoptions, entrance fees and legacies. With the support of adopters, seals in need can continue to count on our support. Support which is still sorely needed.

 

THE ADOPTION AS A UNIQUE GIFT

A seal adoption makes for a special and original gift. The recipient is given a personalised adoption certificate with a photo of the seal and a personal message from the giver of the gift. The certificate with background information of the seal can be sent to the recipient in the name of the gift giver.
