Creatures Finally Arrive Home At Hunstanton

Creatures Finally Arrive Home At Hunstanton

Animals are waking up back home at Hunstanton Sealife Centre, for the first time since December.

The tidal surge last year meant that a number of animals had to be evacuated.  Some to Great Yarmouth, others were taken as far as Scarborough and London.

Otters, seals and tropical fish all came back to the refurbished Sealife Centre yesterday and Manager Nigel Crowsdale says they’re now on track to open next month...

“They need to settle into the their new homes. We need to make sure they’re happy and feeding well. We’ve still got a little bit of work to do inside, stocking everything up and making sure the business side is ready for us to open up on the 16th.”

KLFM were live on the scene as the waves crashed into the Sealife Centre during the tidal surge last December. It led to an emergency evacuation as oxygen pumps, and heaters were destroyed, while dirty water spread contamination into the tanks.

In the end, the organisation decided that it would be better to rip everything out and start again. Nigel told KLFM News that in those first few days, he didn’t realise how bad things were...

“I couldn’t have imagined when the flood first happened that we would be closed for anywhere near this length of time. It just shows what damage 3 or 4 feet of seawater can do when you have it swirling round in your premises.”
