At Ecomare you can see seals, and dozens of other sea inhabitants from very close. Outside in the basins and inside the marine aquariums. About a hundred young seals are cared for every year. There is a webcam aimed at the permanent group of harbor seals. So if you want to see seals, look here!
Long strips of weed float in the seals' basins. Not real seaweed, but an artificial variety. The seals find this a nice addition to their habitat. And that's the point, isn't it?
View the live images of the permanent group of normal seals here. Outside the opening times the seals often climb out of the basin; just look before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m.! Click in the bottom right corner of the video for a full-screen view.
