Episki was rescued on 1st February 2018
Episki, female grey seal pup, was rescued on 1st February 2018 from Holkham beach. Unfortunately she has a damaged right eye which will require treatment and possibly surgery but seals often recover well from eye injuries even if they lose sight in one eye, as they can use their extremely sensitive whiskers to help them to find food.

At only 13kgs she is very small so will need lots of fish to fatten her up.
