Our Appeal

Help us to help them during this difficult time

This is a difficult time for everyone, and we firstly want to say that we hope you are safe and well.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary has been forced to close our doors to the public. We have taken this decision to ensure the safety of all of our guests and staff.

Whilst health and safety is our top priority, we rely on visitors to fund the important work that we do. As an increasing amount of people are, quite rightly, self-isolating, there are financial implications for our sanctuary. All of our resident animals are with us for a reason, and many are on expensive medication that is vital for their health, such as £100 eye drops needed regularly for our Southern sea lions. In fact, we spend nearly £2000 a month on medication and £5000 a month on feeding our animals. Without our visitors, we are concerned about the detrimental effect that this will have on our animals.

We are asking for your help: Please Support our Sanctuary and help us get through these unprecedented and uncertain times by making a donation to our charity. Your money will go towards keeping our animals fed and healthy during this troubled period. You can donate to us vi our website, over the phone or make a £5 donation by texting SEAL 5 to 70085.

We can’t continue our work here at the sanctuary without your support, and whilst we recognise that these are difficult times for everyone, if you are able to spare just a small amount towards the care of our animals, we would greatly appreciate it.

We wish you all good health and we look forward to seeing you here in the future. Thank you.
