As a marine mammal medic I am on call to check and rescue seals. Our most famous one being on this link Relashio who had an engine air filter around his neck and after the Hunstanton vet operated on him on a Sunday night in their own time and Sealife kept him in hospital for a couple of months he was nursed back to full health and released. Further information and updates will be added to my page. For more information on this visit British Diver Marine Life Rescue a voluntary network of trained marine mammal medics who respond to call outs from the general public, HM Coastguard, Police, RSPCA and SSPCA and are the only marine animal rescue organisation operating across England, Wales and Scotland.
I have been working with all of the local organisations, Holkham, Pinewoods, Wells Harbour, AONB and Coastwatch to help protect the seals on our beach. Just ask while you are here for the latest news as it is my aim to enable the seals to have a safe place to haul out on Wells beach whilst poeople can enjoy watching them from a safe distance.

Keep out of the seal enclosure

Stay over 25 meters from a seal, they need to rest on land.

Keep dogs and children away and under control. Seals bite.

Do not walk in front of the enclosure at low tide,

always walk around it, even when there are no seals.

Do not get closer for photo’s.

You are on CCTV.

Enjoy watching the Wells resident Seals from a distance.
