Seal Rescue Centre & Hospital
The Wash and surrounding areas along the Norfolk coast is home to two species of seal, Common Seals and Grey Seals.
The population of Common Seals here alone has the greatest density than anywhere else in the country. Since opening our Seal Hospital in 1989 we have helped rescue and rehabilitate more than 750 seals. In the past 12 months alone SEA LIFE Hunstanton has rescued over 50 Seals from Norfolk and surrounding counties.
