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!

Dear Santa,

Dear Santa, My name is Hopper, I am a harbour seal and this will be my first Christmas! I am only 7 months old, but already got myself into a bit of trouble. I am affected by a lungworm infection. Luckily some humans found me exhausted on the beach. I was brought to Sealcentre Pieterburen, which is one of the largest seal hospitals in the world! The humans at the Sealcentre are taking good care of me. I get fed magical herrings, that makes me stronger every day! I heard that if my health continues to improve, I can go back home in about 2 months. Now, I feel sorry for my caretakers: they are bold and skinny! They are shivering all over these days. I think, you can make them happy with warm clothing such as warm comfy sweaters, beanies, boots and socks ( we might also confiscate a few just to play with…) XOXO Hopper

The seals in Golfbad are awaiting release. For our visitors and fans, we have a webcam pointed at Golfbad. You can watch them 24 hours a day. But you can also support them! And that is very much needed. It hit us hard when our doors closed for the second time this year. Besides missing a large part of our income, the costs of seal care were higher (a regular rehablitation costs €3.000 per seal on average). Would you like to give these seals a final helping hand before they go back home to the Wadden Sea? Adopt your favourite seal or give them a fish!

 

 

Contribute to their rehabilitation and subsequent release back to the Wadden Sea.
