Core tasks of the station are comprehensive information and education, animal welfare-friendly breeding of harbor seals and gray seals, and application-oriented research initiatives to protect the species. Hunters are involved in the localisation of abandonned seal pups and responsible for the recovery of the pups (only certified seal hunters are allowed to do this). The animals will then be brought to the station to be nurtured and relaeased back into the sea.
