The Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary and Wildlife Centre is, in many ways, a home to many animal who needed a place to stay in Mablethorpe. It has a long history, which started with one little seal who needed care, until it became thousands of them from then up to now.
The sanctuary is characterized by two acres of sand dunes found 50 metres from the sea. These dunes are home and haven to wildlife.
As is written, the sanctuary has rescued hundreds of injured seals since it has been founded and openned in the year 1974, approximately 40 years ago. The seals are treated, tended, and cared until it has fully healed before releasing it back to where it came from. Those who,in some circumstances, be able to go back and survive in its natural surroundings, are permanently housed and loved at the sanctuary.
A special hospital has been establish for the treatment of these seals until they fully regain their good health. They will be provided with assistance and healing and has been since 1989.
Aside from seals, the sanctuary is also home several animals and wildlife such as birds and others. The same goes with what happens to the seals. once an animal is injured, it is taken to the sanctuary for healing.
For those who loves animals and would care to visit, the sanctuary has a few exhibits, including Seal Sanctuary Pools, where those who cannot return to the wild experience a stimulating environment built as similar as possible to the natural one, Time Walking and Time Walking, which has hidden fossils and wildlife serving as a timeline for history, Birds of Prey, and many other exhibits.
The Mablethorpe Sanctuary is a big place with a big heart and a big welcome for both animals and humans.
