Our philosophy with wildlife is to let nature take its course and not to disturb. However when man-made threats (such as oil pollution or marine debris) impact on wildlife we try to reduce the impacts to the best of our ability.
Please report any cases of oiled, entangled or diseased or injured wildlife to our offices, on phone 22247.
There are no facilities to deal with seals at the Falklands. Often young seals can get separated from their mums or weaned individuals that are just learning to be self-reliant are found on beaches near to Stanley. The best approach is to not disturb the animal. Please consider whether the animal looks like it really does need any intervention before calling our offices – we often are not able to respond as we don’t have facilities or expertise to look after young seals. In some cases nature has to take charge.
Cetaceans (whales, dolphins, or porpoises) occasionally find themselves stranded along the coasts of the Falkland Islands. When these animals are found alive, attempts are made to “refloat” them, however often these strandings are not found until days, weeks, or even months after the event.
