Coral arrived on 28th October 2010
On the 28th October 2010 a call came in to the Sanctuary about a pup at Booby´s Bay at Padstow.

With so many pups in the hospital the Sanctuary called on Dave of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team to go out and check on the pup.

Once on the beach it was awaiting game as Mum could have been out fishing, and had left her pup safely on the beach to come back too. After a few hours, and no sign of Mum the little pup was picked up and brought to the Sanctuary.
Coral
In our hospital our team can now start a full clinical assessment and any treatment it might need. First is to find out if the pup is a boy or a girl, this pup is a little girl and has been named Coral. Next is the weight and Coral was only 11 kilos which is under nourished for a pup of only a week old. She also had a high temperature and lots of bite wounds on her body. With wounds cleaned and treated and blood samples taken and sent for analysis, she was also started on a course of antibiotics and multi vitamins. As Coral is only a week old, she will be receiving multi milk.
