Feed and interact with baby seals and penguins at Natureland Seal Sanctuary, a renowned wildlife facility dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured seal pups. Wounded seals are often found stranded all along Lincolnshire’s coast, and the sanctuary’s devoted staff runs a purpose-built hospital, where these animals are healed before being released back into the wild. Crocodiles, sheep, goats, snakes, tarantulas, scorpions, and a wide range of tropical butterflies are also cared for and protected at the sanctuary. The site features convenient tourist facilities, including a cafe, gift shop, and a small children’s play area. Visit the sanctuary website for accurate feeding times, special offers, and upcoming events.

  • Absolutely great few hours here with the family, plus dog! Only one area where dogs aren't allowed (butterfly area) which is completely understandable. Get to get up close with a wide variety of animals and the work they do for the seals is brilliant and they are very cute! Have to say a special thanks too to the member of staff cleaning and the fish tanks in the aquarium taking time out of what he was doing to talk us through what he was doing and giving lots of information about the fish, coral and seastars! It was really appreciated by the three of us as he didn't have to and it was very interesting and informative! Visited 07/05/2017
  • This place is brilliant and I won 20,000 because of the wishing well. It's a great place to visit and it's wonderful that you can sponsor different animals. They do a really great job and they don't get any public funding.
  • Absolutely fantastic. Brill job u all do. Keep up the good work x
  • Had a great day at seal sanctuary warm frendly staff and just want to say thank you to one of your work team for finding my phone a big thank you
  • Went out of season so it was not busy and easy to see all of the animals which was perfect for our not so patient 4 year old. The lady on reception was very friendly and engaged our little one in conversation about her visit.
