Humans have a huge impact on nature. And thus the seal's habitat. If we want future generations to be able to enjoy this special ecosystem, we have to take care of it. For both humans and animals. Because together we are one nature. With a legacy to Sealcentre Pieterburen, you contribute to this.

    “Zeehondencentrum Pieterburen heeft voor mijn gevoel een goede balans gevonden tussen dierenwelzijn en natuurbehoud. Een deel van mijn nalatenschap gaat naar dit sympathieke doel. Het is kleinschalig en overzichtelijk. Bovendien CBF gekeurd. Hierdoor weet ik dat mijn nalatenschap goed besteed wordt.”
