At the Ecomare Seal Sanctuary, some 80 to 100 sick and weak young seals are nursed back to health every year. You can see the entire sanctuary process. A seal that has just been brought in is quarantined in a warm space. Animals that are almost ready to return to sea swim around in the group basin.
Birds at Ecomare
The birds are struggling now, but they will be happy once all of the oil has been removed from their feathers. You can see how that works at the bird sanctuary. Ecomare welcomes not just oil-smeared birds, but sick or wounded
birds as well,and nurses them back to health. All of the birds are released back into the wild after a while.
