Breed Rescue Protect Snapshot 2015
All SEA LIFE Centres around the world are committed to marine conservation projects through our BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT initiatives. Here is a snapshot of our global success in 2015"
- In 2015, SEA LIFE successfully bred 5,878 animals as part of coordinated breeding programs. These animals will help maintain genetic diversity for the future.
- In total, 402 animals were rescued by SEA LIFE centres worldwide in 2015, including 194 injured seals and turtles.
- 133 turtles and seals were rehabilitated and released back into the wild in 2015. Not all animals rescued are able to be released, depending on their injuries and circumstances. A total of 171 animals we released.
2016 Plans: Protect
In 2016 the SEA LIFE Trust's focus is increasing marine habitats so more ocean is protected for future generations.
