Rescued Seal Pups
Obi Wan, male grey seal pup, was rescued from in front of the Sanctuary late at about 8.30pm in the evening of 12th February 2017 by Nat, Supervisor of the Animal Care Team.
At first the pup appeared to just be exhausted from rough seas and a little underweight but a closer look revealed he had some nasty wounds to his flippers and an infection as a result.
Although Obi Wan was very poorly when he arrived immediately ate fish for himself. Obi Wan

If You Discover a
Seal Pup in the Wild!

DO keep your distance; DON´T attempt to handle the pup; DON´T attempt to put the pup in the sea; DON´T ignore the situation; DO tell the appropriate organisation. Please call the Hunstanton SEA LIFE on 01485 533576.
Seal Pups on the beach
The Animal Care Team are on call around the clock to race to the rescue of seal pups in trouble anywhere around the coast.

Back at the Sanctuary, pups receive expert veterinary care and are gradually weaned from a liquid diet to whole fish in the purpose built hospital.

Then it´s to the outdoor pools to gain weight and build strength and stamina ready to resume life in the wild.


Towels Always Wanted!
Animal Care Team would like to Thank everyone for donating their towels to help with the seal pups.
If anyone has any spare towels, please drop them into the reception at the Sanctuary. Thank You so much.
