Video: Meerkats cause a stir at Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary

PERHAPS the current most popular residents at Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary these days are the three meerkats.

Earlier this year the sanctuary took in the three meerkats from Chester Zoo and West Midlands Safari Park.

Along with Billy and Elliott, the third meerkat was in need of a name and we ran a competition in the Leader asking for suggestions.

The winning entry was Duchess, which was suggested by ten-year-old Adam Guest from Wiltshire.

Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary is one of the area’s best visitor attraction, the ‘mini zoo’ is home to a huge range of different mammals, birds, reptiles and more.

It’s now open daily from 10am until 5pm with last admission at 4.30pm.
