Daisy was rescued on 6th July 2017
Daisy, a 3 day old female premature common seal pup, was rescued on 6th July 2017 from Hunstanton beach.

She was separated from her mum a few days after being born, Daisy was 1-2 days premature, as the pup still had some of the white natal coat, this is shed inside the uterus; pups are therefore born with their first adult coat. This pup weighed just 8kgs.

Update - 28th August 2017 : Daisy has sadly passed away earlier this month; it is always very sad when one of the rescued pups dies but sometimes these little ones just don´t have enough antibodies and strength in them to pull through, despite the best efforts of all the staff at Hunstanton SEA LIFE.
