What you'll do

In this completely virtual experience, we will bring the excitement of our rescue centre directly into your home! You will have the unique opportunity to have an in-depth look into the world of wildlife rehabilitation at Ireland's only seal rescue centre. Come meet our adorable seal pups up close and help them get one step closer to being released back into the wild!

Your experience will begin with an educational talk about the different types of seals in Ireland, the threats facing them, and how you can help create a safe environment for seals in the wild. Next, we'll bring you behind the scenes for a tour of the hospital where you'll hear the stories of the rescue seals currently in care and meet them up close and personal. You will have the opportunity to join as as we give enrichment items to keep the seals happy and mentally stimulated while in our care. Finally, you get to watch the seals gobble down some fish at one of their daily feeds in our rehabilitation pools and observe them dive, compete, and develop the skills they'll need to flourish in the wild!

We hope you'll leave this experience with a greater respect and understanding of this remarkable animal, which plays a critical role in Ireland's marine ecosystem, and feel inspired to do everything you can to help us protect them!

Note: This experience is priced per person, not per device. Please book accordingly.

Lovely experience! The team at Seal Rescue Ireland were very welcoming and took the time to answer any questions we had. We got to see the adorable seal pups they were taking care of and learned about the wider implications of their work. Very worthwhile!

Very informative and interactive. The guides were very knowledgeable about seals. The work that SRI do is fantastic and it's great to see how well they take care of seals.
