The Cornish Seal Santuary, located at Gweek in Cornwall, is a rescue centre for injured or sick seals and other marine life from around the Cornish coastline. It is located on a 42 acre site. This is no zoo - the centre's mission is to nurse the animals back to health and release them back into the wild, once they have fully recuperated. The centre also houses a colony of Humboldt penguins, a pair of Asian Short-Clawed otters, and some paddock animals that have received a "home for life". The Seal Sanctuary returns around 70 recuperated seal pups to the oceans each year. Visitors to the site can learn about the rescues that have taken place, as well as learns loads about the the life of a seal. You can watch the seals either from the pool side, or go "underground" and watch them swimming through the large aquarium windows. This is a fascinating place to visit that also supports a great cause. Free admission for children under 3. Photo Credits Image by Manfred Richter from Pixabay
