Corona virus update

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily close SEA LIFE Helsinki following advice from the Finnish government and THL in an effort to contain the coronavirus COVID-19. The attraction will remain closed until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. 

Below is further information about the care of our animals 

1. Now you are closed, who is looking after the animals in your attractions?

The safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and animals is our priority and we have therefore taken the necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare.

We have been working closely with THL to ensure we have the right permissions to enter our attraction and ensure we can maintain and continue the animal welfare programmes that we always have in place to look after our animals.

As with many businesses, we had been actively monitoring the situation with regards the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus and had proactively put in place agreed procedures with how to deal with a temporary closure, including agreed animal welfare and husbandry protocols.

SEA LIFE Helsinki places the very highest priority on the welfare of the animals in our care. The animal welfare plans we have are supported by our experienced team of animal experts and third-party veterinary consultants. 

2. Can animals get COVID-19?

According to the World Health Organisation, there's no reason to panic about pets/animals as possible victims or carriers of the corona virus, since there's no evidence that they can be infected.

We will therefore continue with our agreed animal welfare and husbandry protocols, which are among the most exemplary in the industry. SEA LIFE Helsinki places the very highest priority on the welfare of the animals at its attraction, which is supported by our experienced animal care team, marine biologists and independent veterinary consultants. We will continue with these welfare plans until we are able to reopen again.
