Young seals in sanctuary

If you see them in the wild, you should keep your distance. But at Ecomare you can see them up close. How endearing they are, with their big round eyes! They want fish, fish, and more fish. When they weigh 30 kilos they go back to sea. Until then you can enjoy the young seals in the sanctuary in Ecomare. Opening hours: daily (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day) open from 9.30 am - 5 pm. The office closes at 4.30 pm.

Ecomare, natuurmuseum & zeehondenopvang

Ecomare, natuurmuseum & zeehondenopvang

If you are on Texel, you go to Ecomare! A visit to this center is fun and exciting for all ages. Enjoy the young seals in the sanctuary, view the seals in the permanent group above and below water and be amazed about everything that lives in the sea in the Sea Aquarium. The interactive exhibition Wonderlijk Wad (Wonderful Wad) leaves a deep impression; how special nature is. The Wadden Sea is a UNESCO World Heritage area for a reason! Birds in need are cared for in the Bird Shelter. There you will also see a group of gannets: impressive, beautiful seabirds. They share their enclosure with cormorants and shelducks. In the Whale Hall you stand between the gigantic skeletons of a sperm whale and a humpback whale and you discover what is meant by 'a treasure from the intestines of the sperm whale'. There is so much to experience! Buy your tickets in advance at www.ecomare.nl. Ecomare is open daily from 9.30 am - 5 pm (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day). The office closes at 4.30 pm.
