Aayla, a female grey seal, was rescued from Bacton beach in Norfolk and taken to Hunstanton SEA LIFE for treatment and rehabilitation.
Atlanta (aka "Attie"), a female grey seal, was rescued from a beach in the Scottish highlands and taken to the Highland Wildlife Hospital at Ullapool where Beatrice Brinkler succeeded in restoring the seal´s general health.
Badger is a melanistic seal meaning pure black, not usual in Grey Seals. He was rescued from Porthellick in the Isles of Scilly after being separated from his mum on 5th November 2014.
Marlin, a male grey seal, was rescued from Sennen Cove on 29th of January 2002. He was very malnourished and was found with netting around his body. Luckily, the netting had caused no injuries so it was just a case of putting weight on him.
Pumpkin, a male grey seal, was rescued in Guernsey by the GSPCA and was transferred to the seal sanctuary on the 18th November 2010.
Ray, a male grey seal, was picked up from Widemouth Bay on the 12th of October 2001, approximately 3 weeks of age. He was fairly malnourished and found at the top end of the beach, as far away from the water as possible.
Sheba, a female grey seal, is a partially sighted female in our convalescence pool. She was originally rescued, as a pup in the mid 1970s, with nasty infections in both of her eyes.
Snoopy, a female grey seal, arrived at the Sanctuary on the 26th of October 2004. The sanctuary was contacted by the Keepers of Whipsnade Wild Animal Park after Snoopy´s companion died earlier this year, with hope of providing a home for her.
Yulelogs, a male grey seal, was originally rescued, as a pup in 1989, by a marine park in the North of England. For unknown reasons they decided to keep him on in their Grey Seal exhibit. Unfortunately, four years later, they closed the exhibit.
Each Adoption makes a valuable contribution to the seal rescue programme, allowing the Sanctuary to provide continuing care for those seals and other marine mammals around our coasts that need our help and to look after those that are unable to be released back into the wild.
