Primary school

For how long can seals stay underwater? How fast can they swim? And how do they move on land?

Observe, experiment, experience – at the Seal Centre, there are many possibilities to engage with life under and by the water. The focus is on the right way to handle encounters with wild animals and the conservation of their habitat alongside the biology of harbour and grey seal. Educational programmes for sustainable development let visitors of the Centre experience the Wadden Sea National Park and its inhabitants.
