The Seal Sanctuary
The Seal Sanctuary is a Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release centre for seals. Most seasons they rescue over 50 pups.
It was created in 1958 when a baby seal, only a few hours old, was washed up on the beach at St Agnes.
The Sanctuary moved to Gweek in 1975, and Ken slowly built up the size, and number of pools, so he could care for the increasing number of seals that were being rescued around the Cornish coast.
Today the Sanctuary has nursery pools, convalescent and resident pools, and a specially designed hospital. Occasionally the Sanctuary´s facilities and expertise are called upon to aid in the rescue of other marine creatures such as Dolphins and Turtles.
