Please Note We are Closed the 27th of February for Essential Maintenance
We are approaching the summer season when Common seals give birth to their pups through June, July & August. If you are out on beaches in the coming weeks, keep your eye out for seal pups in distress. Human activity by means of boat traffic and water sports, as well as people and dogs on beaches can sometimes frighten away nursing mothers and inadvertently lead to pups being injured or orphaned.
If the pup is on its own with no mum in sight; obviously injured; or if unsure please ring Exploris Aquarium on 028 4272 8062 and select option 2
Though we can provide care for these little orphans – nothing compares to a mother caring for and raising her pup so it is extremely important to prevent the circumstances where pups end up needing to be rescued, and by sharing we can all help!
