Fawkes was rescued on 24th December 2009
We received a telephone call on Christmas Eve (24th December 2009) from a concerned member of the public who had come across a pup at Godrevy near Hayle.

The team were despatched, at the beach they found a little seal around 8-10 weeks old very malnourished, with a snotty nose and breathing problems.

The seal was uplifted and taken back to the Sanctuary and put into isolation 2 where we could do a full clinical assessment.
