While it is a shame it won't be open to the public, I do understand the need to allow wildlife to recuperate as naturally and stress free as possible. The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, (mentioned in the article) does facilitate visitors, but the seals in treatment are given the privacy they need and the public do not get to see them so they released back in to the wild with as little human intervention as possible.

The seals that are on public view are there for the rest of their lives because rehoming them is not an option.
