You are welcome
Every year, the SRRC receives around 150.000 visitors. One of the SRRC’s main objectives is informing as many people as possible about the problems seals are facing. In order to inform them, visitors are able to actually take a look around the SRRC’s seal kitchen, and experience the care and treatment of rehabilitating seals from close by. Every day, there are SRRC- workers available in the visitor centre and in amongst the pools, who explain and answer the visitors’ questions.
Children are an important target group, because they decide the future of Dutch wildlife even more than adult visitors. We want to teach them to respect each individual animal. Therefore, we make an extra effort to inform today’s youths. Children can play interesting and educational games in the kids action corner, while the youngest play in the indoor sandpit.
In the SRRC’s cinema, which is adorned with a unique mural by artist Anne van Borselen, informative films are being shown for people of all ages. Visitors can learn about seals, the Wadden Sea and the SRRC’s activities throughout the world, in the spacious visitors centre.
The SRRC is open to the public the whole year round from 9 AM until 6 PM (including on Sundays and bank holidays). A day ticket costs € 8,= per person for adults and € 8,= for children from 3 until 12 years old. Children under three and SRRC supporters have free access. Every day, there are SRRC workers available in the visitor"s centre, who are happy to answer all your questions.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed inside the SRRC, due to the risk of contamination.
At the entrance there are pegs available, which you can use to tie up your dog. There are also drinking bowls available. Your ticket allows you to leave and enter the SRRC at any time during your visit, to check up on the well being of your dog.
Special aid and guide dogs are allowed inside the SRRC. They fall under different regulations.
