Every year, The Scottish Sealife Sanctuary, rescues, rehabilitates, and releases injured and abandoned seal pups from around the coast of scotland. Saving these unfortunate creatures from certain death requires a high degree of care and commitment.

By choosing to become a sponsor, your valuable contribution will ensure that your sponsored seal is given the best chance of making a full recovery which will enable it to safely return home to the wild.

For these rare unfortunate animals, who for various reasons are unable to effectively survive in the wild, your support will ensure that they live out the remainder of their lives in the safe confines of The Scottish Sealife Sanctuary.
