Support our mission

Every day we work to have healthy seals living in a healthy sea. For over 50 years we have been committed to rescuing seals in need. We provide seals with the best care possible, thanks to our specialised veterinarians, experienced seal nurses, and dedicated volunteers from all over the world.

Prevention is better than cure

At the same time, we look beyond the individual animal. We also care for the habitat of the seal — UNESCO World Heritage the Wadden Sea. With seal guards as our ears, eyes, and voice along the Dutch coast, we strive to do everything we can to prevent seals from getting into trouble.

Will you help us strive for a healthy seal in a healthy sea?

  • "I support the Sealcentre because, as a donor, I can see what happens with my donation and I am so well involved in developments."

  • "What I like most about the centre is that it has been supported by volunteers and donors for so many years." 

  • "The conservation of the Wadden Sea and seals is important. You cannot have one without the other: healthy habitat, healthy seals. This requires research (and that costs money) hence the support."

Help ons als donateur

We do not receive subsidies, so we are completely dependent on donations, entrance fees, and legacies. Thanks to your support, we can continue to do our work. Would you like to help?
