Rescued seal pups 2013-14
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary have, with the amazing help of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue team and the Cornwall Seal Group, gone out in all weathers to rescue over 60 pups this 2013/14 season.

This season´s casualties included three seal pups with broken jaws, one with fractured ribs, ten eye ulcerations with three ruptured/collapsed eyes (all three of which were saved), ten unweaned pups and of all the seals so far, 60% were classed as malnourished while even more had cuts and puncture wounds.

Beach Clean
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary continues to support the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) in their efforts to clean up Cornwall´s coastlines.

On 28th April 2014 member of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary will be working with the Marine Conservation Society and Marks & Spencer on their annual Big Beach Clean Up event taking place at Hayle, adjacent to the estuary.

These beaches are particularly important to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary because they are sometimes used for releasing rescued pups back to the wild.

There are beach cleans organised throughout the country, so please click on this link and sign up to your local one and lend a hand.
