Angelina Johnson was rescued on 1st November 2009
Angelina Johnson was rescued on the 1st November 2009. We had a call from a member of the public about a seal pup at Marazion, and sent our team out to take a look.

They found the pup on the beach, abandoned by its mother, grazes to her chin and scuffs to her front left and right flippers.

The pup was brought back to the sanctuary and a full clinical assessment was carried out. Angelina was weighed and found to be 12 kilos, which for a pup of 2 days old was under weight, 2 kilos less then her birth weight.
