SEA LIFE Trust is our partner charity, helping to protect the world’s oceans and their amazing creatures. It has a vision of oceans that are healthy, protected, and full of diverse, wonderful creatures. Here’s how they’re making it happen:
- Working with SEA LIFE aquariums to reach millions of people around the world
- Running inspiring campaigns and projects to teach people about the importance of plastic-free oceans, sustainable fishing, Marine Protected Areas and ending the exploitation of marine life
Breed, Rescue, Protect
We’re excited and passionate about protecting our oceans for future generations. That’s why our expert marine biologists have come up with the BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT program. All over the world, our program helps take care of our oceans – and the weird and wonderful creatures that call them home.
BREED Our breeding programs focus on diverse creatures like jaw-some sharks and cuddly penguins.
RESCUE Some of our aquariums rescue and release poorly creatures like seals and turtles. Aaw!
PROTECT We're passionate about the protection of the ocean and its creatures.
SEA LIFE Trust Sanctuaries
Operating two marine animal sanctuaries:
- the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek where sick and injured seal pups receive expert care at the onsite Seal Hospital so that, once they have regained full health, they can be released back to their home in the sea.
- Most recently, SEA LIFE Trust created the world's first Beluga Whale Sanctuary. The sanctuary, which is based in Iceland, is home to two beautiful belugas named Little White and Little Grey. Both whales made an epic journey of over 6,000 miles from China to their new home.
The world's first Beluga Whale Sanctuary
Our charity partner the SEA LIFE Trust owns and operates two marine animal sanctuaries.
They recently created the world’s first whale sanctuary for formerly captive beluga whales off the south coast of Iceland. The first two residents, Little White and Little Grey, travelled over 6,000 miles from an aquarium in China to their new home on Heimaey Island in June 2019.
