Seal Sanctuary & Wildlife Centre

Two Acres or Rescued and Rehomed Animals from Dozens of Species

The Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary & Wildlife Centre is a must see visitor attraction perfect for the whole family. Explore two acres of sand dunes and discover animals including primates, reptiles, birds of prey, meerkats, seabirds and much more.

Many of our animals have been injured so their enclosures have been tailored to their needs. The attraction is also built with our visitors in mind with caves to walk through and underwater windows that let you watch our animals swim by.

The grounds include places to stop and have a rest or even a picnic and our vegetarian cafe offers a selection of hot and cold snacks including freshly made sandwiches, crispy chips and delicious cakes!

We are easy to access being located next to Mablethorpe’s North End Car Park but also accessible via the Sand Train which runs along the beach or the Land Train which runs up and down Quebec Road.

The Mablethorpe Wildlife Rescue Charity

The Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary has rescued hundreds of injured and orphaned seals since it opened in 1974. In a specially designed hospital, the seals are looked after until they can be released back into the wild. For those unable to return, The Seal Sanctuary offers a permanent home, doing all it can to give these wonderful creatures a contented existence.

The wildlife hospital was opened in 1989 thanks to a major donation from the readers of the Daily Mail along with support from dozens of other businesses and individuals. As well as the grey & common seals many other animals have since been treated in the hospital.

After a period of rehabilitation all the animals that can fend for themselves are returned to the wild but those that cannot are given sanctuary here. Look out for the foxes, badgers, barn owls and kestrels that have been provided with a refuge in this natural environment.

You can find out more about the charity, and how to support it on the Mablethorpe Wildlife Rescue website.
