Natureland Seal Sanctuary is a compact site with gentle gradients and alternative routes are available for the less mobile. Thus making it ideal for older visitors as well as those with mobility problems.
Natureland first opened it's doors in 1965 and attracts thousands of visitors every year, many of whom return time and time again.
Our 'resident' seals are Common (Harbour) seals. Some of the adult seals in the Sanctuary Bay pool were our original babies rescued and reared in the late 1960's.
The Penguins at Natureland are known as Black-footed or Jackass Penguins from their strange braying noises; they live in 'rookeries' of hundreds of thousands on the islands off Cape Town.There they breed in the southern spring and summer -from October- and in the English climate they keep the same rhythm, which means that the two eggs are due to hatch towards Christmas.
Every year, particularly during the breeding season, seal pups are washed up on the beaches around Skegness, abandoned or separated from their mothers by the treacherous tides. The lucky ones are brought into Natureland's Seal Hospital where they are cared for using a method researched since 1966. This method has proved so successful that many are safely reared each year, all of which would have died if they had been left on the beach
The Pets Corner is always popular with its collection of really tame domestic animals. Goats and turkeys, rabbits and guinea pigs are permanent residents, joined in the summer by calves from a Lincolnshire farm. These are the only exhibits, along with the Koi Carp, that may be fed by the visitors. The racks are always stacked with hay and at the nearby giftshop, packets of suitable food may be bought.
Wide variety of fish to see ranging from:
