Sanctuary Ambassadors

Meet the ambassadors of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary! Our amazing ambassadors help us to spread awareness of our vital work, their support is incredible and we are honoured to work with them. Learn more about them here!

Hannah Stitfall

Meet Hannah, an ardent conservationist, filmmaker and presenter. She is an expert in the illegal trading and trafficking of wildlife on social media and has a first class degree in Zoology.

She is a keen wildlife photographer and uses her own channels to communicate conservation issues sharing her love for wildlife and nature.

Hannah joined the Sanctuary family in 2019 to help us with our work rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing seal pups from around the coastline. 

Hannah said “The more connections people make with the natural world, the more memories they will have, the more they will care about it and in turn protect it. The work carried out here in Cornwall to rescue and rehabilitate injured and distressed seals is of vital importance, vital work which they should be very proud of.”

Hannah has been vital in spreading awareness of the Sanctuary and helping us raise vital funds in order to continue our vital work and we couldn't be more thankful to her for her continued support.

Lucie Rose Donlan

Meet Lucie, a professional model and free surfer based in Newquay, Cornwall. She is also recognisable from the UK hit Reality TV Show, Love Island.

Lucie’s passion for the ocean and her love for wildlife and animals really resonated with the Sanctuary. Her incredible support during lockdown helped us during our time of need and we are so grateful to Lucie for using her platform to spread awareness of the Sanctuary. Lucie came for a visit  to meet the animals and our team and we were thrilled to welcome Lucie to the Sanctuary family in June 2020.

Lucie said “I am so honoured to have been made an Ambassador for this much-loved Sanctuary that not only does amazing work but also is a fun and exciting attraction full of educational facts and information.  Myself and my family enjoyed a private tour around the Sanctuary at the beginning of the week and we were very impressed with what we saw.”

“I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the friendly and informative staff who made our day not only memorable but also educational.  I'm so proud of attractions such as this in Cornwall, just knowing that people care deeply about the welfare and rehabilitation of these beautiful creatures.  Its so important to keep these Sanctuaries fully operative and I'm passionate about being chosen as an Ambassador and hope to be able to work closely with them so that they can continue to work their magic for the rescued and injured seals.”

The Sanctuary are thrilled to have Lucie as part of the team and look forward to sharing exciting collaborations together in the future.
