Work Experience/Volunteers

Secret Creek Volunteers

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary has a very new exciting project taking place in the large woodland area on site. This habitat is now home to three beaver kits, Twiggy, Barbara and Norbert. The Secret Creek project will mainly focus on research including monitoring water pollution, biodiversity counts, the impact of beaver dams, landscape change and public perception on beaver rewilding. In order for this vital research to be carried out we need help keeping an eye on these busy beavers and the dramatic changes they are already making down at the Secret Creek!

Education Volunteers

Education and engagement plays a vital role at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. With thousands of guests coming through our doors every year it is our mission to educate and inspire all generations about the work we do here from rescue to release as well as to protect our seas and marine life, now and for the future. If you are passionate about the marine environment and like working with people then we need you! We are looking for a team of volunteers to convey our important message in a fun and engaging way!
