During the Spring holiday from 16th of February until 10th March Sealcentre Pieterburen organizes many entertaining and educative activities. When visiting us you enter a seal hospital where you can closely follow the recovery of the seals. Besides the Common seals you can also visit Jolly, the first Grey seal pup we rehabilitated since the beginning of the Winter. She is doing really well and on a daily basis we give presentations at her pool so you can learn more about the rehabilitation of seals.
