Manatee was rescued on 7th August 2017
Manatee (Manny), approximately 7 weeks old male common seal, was rescued on 7th August 2017 from Cromer West by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team and relayed across Norfolk (via SEA LIFE Yarmouth) to SEA LIFE Hunstanton.

The pup has a nasty wound to his rear flipper and bad case of lungworms. Manny also has got a nasty infection which is being treated with antibiotics and he is getting anti-inflamatories to take his flipper swelling down. Current weight 13.3kgs.

Update - 28th August 2017 : Manatee 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.
