[Rescued Seals]
a rescued grey seal pupThis seal pup does not have a name at present, he was a little skinny on his arrival at the hospital but apart from that doing well. He weighed 18.5kg on the 15th January 2007 and had been sitting on the beach at Heacham attracting quite a lot of attention. He is now eating well and putting on weight and hopefully should be released in a few months.
Update: 1st March 2007 - Unfortunately this grey seal passed away on the 28th of February 2007, we suspect that in the end the seal died due to worms. Unfortunately the parasite burden can be too high and the seals just cannot cope.
