Holly was rescued on 12th December 2008

Holly We received a phone call from a member of the public on Friday 12th December 2008 about a seal on the beach at Peters Point. Amy headed out with a couple of volunteers and found the pup on the beach malnourished. On the beach the pup was found to have a wound to the under side of her right flipper and was malnourished weighing only 13 kilos.Holly
