Seal Rescue Ireland (SRI) is a registered charity organisation that works around the clock to rescue, rehabilitate and release native seal pups found sick, injured or orphaned across the coast of Ireland. As the only seal rescue centre in the Republic of Ireland, we respond to reports nationwide with the aim to rehabilitate the pups back to full health so that we can return them to the wild.
SRI is very active in educating the public on threats facing marine life and promoting ocean conservation and sustainability in order to protect our seas and all who inhabit them. We strive to forge a connection between the public and our marine mammal patients, to raise awareness about pressing environmental issues including climate change, plastic pollution, water pollution, biodiversity loss, and human disturbance, which put all marine life at risk. As many of the threats that relate to these resilient yet fragile animals originate from human activity, we have taken it as our mission to give a second chance at life to the seals that come within our care, and protect the environment to which we strive to return them.
