In our spacious seal enclosure, the seals can play in their natural habitat, the sea and shoreline. And that suits them perfectly! The enclosure is continually refreshed with fresh seawater; they can experience the changing of the seasons and can hunt for crabs and small fish on the seabed.
We are home to two harbour seals, Maïa and Felix and a grey seal called Tulle.
We train our seals every day to provide them with stimulation and exercise. At the same time, their training ensures the seals are comfortable with human contact, so we can handle them if they have to be moved or if they are ill. The seals are very talented – they can recognise letters and jump high out of the water!
