    This is what they do:

    To care for and treat seals and to release them back into the wild.

    To inform the public about the problems of the seal and its environment.

    To conduct research into the factors which influence the health of the seal, both of individual animals and of the total population; besides this, into threats to marine mammals in general.

    Favorite thing: If u like seals and if u are interested how seals are rescued 'Zeehondencreche Pieterburen' (seal nursery Pieterburen) is a must to visit.Here's how to get to the Seal Rehabilitation and Research Centre:
    From Groningen:On the Groningen ring road, take the exit to Winsum, then the turning to Baflo, then the turning to Pieterburen. In Pieterburen follow the signs to the 'Zeehondencrèche' (Hoofdstraat 94a).During the holiday season the SRRC can be reached by special public transport, a bus named 'Crèche Express', from Groningen to Pieterburen and vice versa.

    Fondest memory: If you decide to visit Pieterburen and it's a warm and/or sunny day, you can also visit 'Domies Toen', dialect for 'The country garden of the reverend'. Very well worth a visit!
