The Cornish Seal Sanctuary Gweek


As Europe's leading seal hospital we help rescue and rehabilitate up to 60 grey seal pups every year. Our aim is to release all seal pups back into the wild when they are strong enough. Sometimes this isn't possible, so they join our resident seals and make the Cornish Seal Sanctuary their home.

Not only do we care for grey seals and common seals but when you visit you will also meet our Californian and Southern Sea lions, ponies, goats, otters and penguins. We really are Cornwall's most heart-warming story! Set within 42 acres of luscious landscape, overlooking the idyllic Helford estuary, it's a great day for nature lovers, families and friends and we are a dog friendly site too! We have daily talks and feeds with our animal care team and entertainments staff that are all very informed and make the experience fun!
