SEA LIFE Trust Sanctuaries

Giving a home to sick and injured creatures

SEA LIFE Trust sanctuaries rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured marine creatures.

Every year, we return over 150 seals and turtles to their natural habitats. But if a creature can’t return to the wild, we give it a home for life at one of our sanctuaries.

The newest sanctuary to open is home to two lovely beluga whales named Little White and Little Grey. Both whales were moved 6,000 miles from an aquarium in China to live at the world's first open water beluga whale sanctuary in Iceland.

Meet some of the sanctuary residents below:


Ray is a grey seal, he was rescued after being found pressed up against the side of a rock face during a bad storm. He now has a home at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.


Babyface is a common seal and was rescued in 1978. He now lives at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.
