SUBJECT: PSA: Seal viewing platform at Ocean Sciences Centre temporarily closed to public

DATE: February 12, 2016

The Ocean Sciences Centre in Logy Bay is advising that the seal viewing platform is temporarily closed to the public.

The steps leading to the platform have been removed as winter weather has eroded the stair supports.

Memorial University’s Department of Facilities Management will undertake repairs to the structure in the spring. The platform will be inaccessible until that time.
