Natureland Seal Sanctuary Zoos
Natureland first opened it's doors in 1965 and attracts thousands of visitors every year, many of whom return time and time again. Be it feeding the pets in the children's corner or watching the beautiful Coral Fish or Tropical Butterflies, entertainment value is high at Natureland and one of the most popular features is feeding time for the seals and penguins.
Our 'resident' seals are Common (Harbour) seals. Some of the adult seals in the Sanctuary Bay pool were our original babies rescued and reared in the late 1960's.
Feeding times are intended to be educational as well as fun and also act as a form of environmental enrichment for the seals keeping them active and stimulated.
The Penguins at Natureland are known as Black-footed or Jackass Penguins from their strange braying noises; they live in 'rookeries' of hundreds of thousands on the islands off Cape Town.
The Tropical House contains a variety of animals, mainly reptiles and creepy crawlies! The Pets Corner is always popular with its collection of really tame domestic animals. Goats and turkeys, rabbits and guinea pigs are permanent residents, joined in the summer by calves from a Lincolnshire farm. The large Sea Life tank exhibits creatures found off our coastline in the North Sea. The species in this tank may vary from time to time but rays (thornback), British sharks (tope, spotted dogfish), bass and whiting can usually be seen.
In the three sections of the Floral Palace you will find a great range of plant life from cacti and other succulents found in the deserts of Arizona and California, through the flowers and shrubs typical of Mediterranean lands, to the orchids and food plants of the moist tropics. .
