Seal Research Facility

The training of seals and research initiatives undertaken at the Ocean Science Centre's seal research facility has been achieved by the ongoing participation in experiential learning programs and with the help of volunteers from high school co-operative programs, Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) and Memorial’s Undergraduate Career Experience Program (MUCEP).

The existing Seal Volunteer Program continues with volunteers providing seal care, feeding on weekends and with additional volunteers assisting with weekday training and husbandry during the summer.
