Sealife Centre!

At the end of July my boyfriend and I visited the Sealife Centre in Birmingham. We probably visit once a year and it makes a lovely day out. The entry fee you pay for the Sealife Centre supports the breeding, protection and rescue of sea creatures. It is nice to feel like we can have a nice day out and our money goes toward a good cause. The Birmingham Centre has a specific focus on otters and seahorse conservation. (Website link if you would like to find out more).

Have you been to the Birmingham Sealife Centre? Or another Sealife Centre? What did you think?

Here are some of my pictures:
