Seal Hospital

Yorkshire's Only Seal Hospital

Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary is home to Yorkshire's only Seal Hospital. You'll be able to follow the journey of our injured Seals through their rescue from local coastal waters, through rehabilitation and eventually release back into the wild!

Seal Rescue at SEA LIFE Scarborough Seal Hospital

Seal Rescue

We rescue over 30 injured seal pups from local coastal waters each year and bring them to our Seal Hospital to undergo a rehabilitation programme.

Seal Rehabilitation

Our Seal Hospital has the facilities to look after 4 poorly seal pups at one time. Each seal costs over £2,000 to rehabilitate and we are incredibly grateful for the continued support from our guests.

Seal Release to Wilde at SEA LIFE Scarborough Seal Hospital

Seal Release

Once our rescued seal pups injuries have healed and they have reached a healthy weight we release them back into the wild. We're lucky to be able to work closely with the RSPCA to ensure our seals get the best possible getaway and chance at a healthy life in the wild.
