Beach Clean

Saturday 29th July 2023

In aid of S.O.S Month, we are also taking steps to try and help protect our local shores from pollution by hosting a beach clean on Tynemouth Longsands. The public are more than welcome to join the team on the litter pickup, with the equipment provided to those joining in. So make sure to come along and help make a difference to our local shores.

If you would like to join, please make sure to meet our team outside Tynemouth Aquarium at 11am on Saturday 29th July.

Seal Hospital Pop-Up

Saturday 5th August – Sunday 6th August 2023

Once again in theme with S.O.S Month, you can visit the seal hospital pop-up just outside of where it is situated within the aquarium. Here you will be able to ask questions about the fantastic job the volunteers do as well as what to do if you see an injured seal. They will be able to tell you how they aid in the recovery and rehabilitation process of baby seals that are found injured or ill.

You can also purchase some of the Seal Hospital merchandise, with all of the money going straight back into the seal hospital facilities. Find out what sort of things that you can donate to help the Seal Hospital from the representatives at the stand and help to make a difference.

Make sure to follow the Seal Hospital on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with any releases or updates.
