TWO CHEERS - NEW RESCUE EFFORTS!
New centers in Washington State and Republic of Ireland

SEALIFE RESPONSE RESCUE REHABILITATION

SR3 - SEALIFE RESPONSE + RESCUE + REHABILITATION
Mukilteo, WA
 
With an extensive team of staff and expert advisors, a growing group of volunteers and institutional partners, and a location in one of the richest habitats for marine mammals in North America, SR3 has potentially vast resources and equally vast challenges to meet. Founded in 2017 with a focus ranging from Orcas (Killer whales) to Sea otters, with a significant commitment to Harbor seals, this new effort will finally give Washington facilities designed and permitted to care for endangered marine mammals.

SEAL RESCUE IRELAND

SEAL RESCUE IRELAND
Courtown Harbour, Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland
 
Seal Rescue Ireland just re-opened in the last few years, after
their original rescue facility, The Dingle Wildlife and Seal
Sanctuary in County Kerry, was destroyed in winter storms.
They were offered a new start in Courtown, County Wexford,
where they have continued their work. In the 2017-2018
season, they have issued an URGENT APPEAL for volunteer
support, due to unprecedented storm-driven strandings.
