A seal sanctuary in Skegness says it will only escape financial ruin if visitors are able to return over the summer.
Natureland has been rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned and injured seals since it was founded in 1965.
However, the attraction has been forced to close for the first time in its history due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The centre rescues up to 70 seals every year and each one costs about £2,000 to rehabilitate.
