The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is reopening to the public

With the government now relaxing lockdown in certain areas, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary are reopening their doors to the public on Friday the 19th of June.

Thousands of seals and seal pups have been rescued by the Cornish Seal Sanctuary since 1958, with each pup costing approximately £2000 to rehabilitate and return to the wild.

With footfall being their largest source of income, the team are keen to get people back through the doors to enable them to continue this vital service.

Various precautions have been implemented to make sure anyone visiting will be able to do so safely.

These include everyone's temperature being taken before entry, maintaining a 2m (or adult grey seal!) distance from others and using card where possible. 

To make sure visitors to the Seal Sanctuary remain spread out, they're asking everyone to buy their tickets online and choose an entry time slot. If you already have a ticket, pass or voucher you must also choose your entry slot online before visiting.

To avoid crowds gathering, no scheduled talks will take place, but every family will be given a complementary self-guided booklet upon arrival from which you can learn all about the animals currently living there. 

If you're feeling peckish, the cafe will be open serving takeaway from slightly reduced menu. 

If you'd like to support the vital work the Cornish Seal Sanctuary do, and have a fab day out visiting the seals and exploring their 42 acres, please find more information on the Cornish Seal Sanctuary website.
