We rely on members of the public who come across pups in distress and our amazing team of coast wide Rescue Volunteer Network to bring rescue and transport the pups to our centre for care.

The Seal Rescue Centre is completely volunteer run and relies on passionate people from all around Ireland and even the world to give up their time to come to Ireland to care for the seal pups in need.
