Get more out of your visit to Seal Rescue Ireland's Visitor Center by participating in this brand new, engaging experience, which is great for all ages! This programme gives you the unique opportunity to see our adorable seal pups up close, get involved in the rehabilitation process, and help us get them one step closer to being released back into the wild! Your experience will begin with a behind the scenes tour of the hospital where you'll assist our skilled staff in preparing feeds and other enrichment items to keep the seals happy, healthy and mentally stimulated while in our care. You will then be led out to our rehabilitation pools for the chance to feed the seals, watch them dive and compete for fish, and develop the skills they'll need to flourish in the wild!
SRI is active in educating the public on threats facing marine life and promoting ocean conservation and sustainability in order to protect our seas and all who inhabit them. SRI strives to forge a connection between the public and our marine mammal patients, to raise awareness about pressing environmental issues including climate change, ocean pollution and threats to biodiversity, to protect seals in the wild. SRI’s work is made possible almost entirely due to the dedication of volunteers and the generosity of public donations.
